I hope Akufo-Addo and his ministers forgive me – Kwesi Nyantakyi

Former President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, has publicly apologised to President Akufo-Addo for implicating him in the infamous ‘Number 12’ expose, spearheaded by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

In the documentary, Nyantakyi was captured making remarks that suggested the president and some cabinet ministers were involved in corrupt activities, tarnishing their reputations in the process.

Acknowledging his wrongdoing in an interview with Onua TV, Nyantakyi admitted to speaking out of turn during a meeting with supposed investors, where he suggested the need to offer bribes to the president and his vice to facilitate business dealings in Ghana.

“I admit I was wrong to mention the President [Akufo-Addo] and his Vice [Dr Mahamudu Bawumia] in that incident. I am sorry and I hope they forgive me,” Nyantakyi expressed remorse.

He further clarified that his comments were made in error and expressed regret for the implications they had.

Nyantakyi’s apology comes as he seeks to rebuild trust among party members and higher authorities following his decision to contest in the by-elections for the Ejisu Constituency seat, left vacant by the late John Kumah.
