To the two lovely daughters of beleaguered former Ghana Football Association [GFA] boss, their daddy is their hero.

He happened to be always there for them when they needed him. He listened to them and taught them so many things – but the situation could likely change; so they have been made to understand.

The daughters of Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi who are being educated at one of Ghana’s most expensive school, Ghana International School [GIS] fear that their loving father will be jailed.

According to Mrs. Christine-Marie Nyantakyi, the first wife of former GFA boss, her daughters are extremely worried about their father’s quandary in recent time which has virtually left him ‘jobless’ in the football fraternity.

Mrs. Christine-Marie Nyantakyi who was speaking to Paul Adom Okyere on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana show on Tuesday recalled how her 9year old daughter,  out of the blue, asked her  [Mum] about her father’s predicament after her school friend had sought to found out.

It’s very bad. I remember when the news was all over that my husband has been arrested; I went to pick my daughter from school and immediately she saw me, she run to me and emotionally asked ‘Mum, is it true daddy is going to jail?’She started cry, I hugged her and told her daddy is not going to jail” She recalled.

“She [my daughter] also complained to me that her friends at school keep telling her that her dad is in trouble. They have gone through a lot but with the help of the school’s principal, we have a counselor for them to help them and myself. They were absent from school for four [4] days when the issue started and the recent FIFA ban has worsen the issue,” she added. 

Nyantakyi was banned for life by the adjudicatory chamber of FIFA’s Ethics Committee following the airing of the investigative piece by the ace journalist.

A release from FIFA stated that during this time, Mr Nyantakyi is banned from all football activities at both national and international level (administrative, sports or any other). The ban comes into force immediately.

Background

Nyantakyi, came under scrutiny in June this year following an undercover investigation done by Ghanaian journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas between 2016 and 2018.

Nyantakyi was captured on videos negotiating a deal with businessmen and accepting a bribe of $65,000 to help establish an oil business in his native country.

Also, he was filmed while negotiating how to create a fake agency to pocket 20 per cent of a supposed five-year sponsorship deal for the Ghana Premier League worth $15 million. He would’ve been $3.7 million richer if everything had gone as planned.

Nyantakyi, who was in his third term in office before he resigned, became Ghana FA boss in December 2005, after succeeding Dr. Nyaho-Nyaho Tamakloe.

YOU STARTED WELL LEO BUT UNFORTUNATELY YOU VEERED OFF YOUR RATHER HUMBLE PATH. YOU ARE RATHER MAKING EVERYBODY ANGRY FOR THE FACT THAT NYANTAKYI GOOFED BIG TIME AND THAT HAS OVER THE PERIOD AFFECTED OUR FOOTBALL AS A COUNTRY. DO YOU KNOW THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN AFFECTED BY THIS BRIBERY SCANDAL? WE ALL BEAR WITH THESE INNOCENT KIDS AND THEIR MOTHER BUT PLEASE THE FACT THAT WE WERE DUPED BY THE WHITE MAN SOME CENTURIES AGO DOES NOT GIVE US THE LEEWAY TO MISBEHAVE AND USE BOTH HANDS TO EAT AT THE EXPENSE OF THE AVERAGE GHANAIAN. NYANTEKYI CAN SEEK REDRESS FROM THE LAW COURT IF HE THINGS THAT TIGER EYE HAS ROBBED HIM OF HIS FREEDOM. IN AS MUCH AS WE ALL SYMPATHIES WITH HIM, TRUTH WILL ALWAYS BE THE DAUGHTER OF TIME AND HIS CUP GOT FULL. FOR ME NYANTEKYI SHOULD HAVE BEEN A LITTLE BIT SLOWER WITH SOME OF HIS ACTIONS AND UTTERANCES, AFTER ALL THERE IS NOTHING LIKE ABSOLUTE POWER AND GOD ABHORS GREED AND ARROGANCE. HE SAW IT COMING, IT WAS RIGHT AT THE DOOR BUT HE NEGLECTED IT FOR REASONS KNOWN TO HIM ALONE.

Hmmm, its sad but madam don't worry God is still in His miracle business. Whether or not the claim that he was corrupt is not important to me for now. This man would have become CAF President in the very shortest time but because of the pill him down attitude of the black man, this is what we have robbed our country. I believe too that Mr. Nyantakyi who has always be my hero and still is would have risen to perhaps become FIFA president one day. This why I always say that we blacks will forevr remain where we are till thy kingdom come, The Europeans robbed us and took us as slaves to developed their continent. They did all manner of things to us the black people to get to their current position and they never fought each other but look at what we have done to our own and some skin pains call it greed, you too go and be greedy so we use the outcome to develop Ghana. Have you forgotten how our African brothers in Libya were used by the developed countries to do against their own Gatharfi. I am ashamed of those c r I minals called Tiger eye who continue to create pains for our people in the name of their funny investigative journalism. If all of us are recorded with video in what we all say in our privacies this world cannot contain all of us. The earlier the authorities do something about this extortionist one called Anas the better for us all. Why does he go around covering his face. God will punish him before he dies. S W I N E
