The Government has stated that the Attorney General and Minister of Justice will soon take over the criminal case of the former President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwasi Nyantakyi after investigations were concluded by the Police CID. This comes after the opposition National Democratic Congress urged the government to expedite action into investigations on the conduct of the former GFA boss. Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi was handed a life ban from all football activities at both national and international level (administrative, sports or any other) by FIFA on Tuesday, 30th October, 2018. The NDC also called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to open himself up for an investigation to clear his name in connection with the Number 12 undercover documentary by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, which exposed massive corruption in Ghana football. But speaking on Okay Fm's "Ade Akye Abia" Programme, Deputy Information Minister, Pius Enam Hadzide, in relation to a statement released by government, stated that Mr. Nyantakyi is not a close confidante of the President as claimed by the NDC. "Just like any other institution, the president may have a professional working relationship with the head of the institution. That is not to say that the president is friend to the person. “The President has had a public service record spanning more than four decades with an unblemished reputation. He has never been associated with matters of corruption in his entire life, private and public. “It is not surprising that even the founder of the NDC has on several occasions, vouched for the incorruptibility of President Nana Akufo-Addo. Also, his commitment, both in words and in deeds, to the fight against the canker of corruption remains admirably unwavering and indubitable, perhaps, never seen in the history of this country,” he said. He assured the nation that Mr. Nyantakyi's case is ongoing and "as and when the police will conclude with their investigations, it will be pursued to its logical conclusion."
