In response to allegations made by former Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi on renowned investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas requesting him to pay $150,000 to disregard the airing of the Number 12 exposé, Anas Aremeyaw Anas in a press release dated April 2, 2024 has disclaimed the allegations made by the former CAF Vice President.

In an interview with Captain Smart on Onua TV on Tuesday, April 2, 2024, Kwesi Nyantakyi stated that undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas asked him to pay a whooping amount of $150,000 in order to avoid the airing of the Number 12 exposé.

According to Nyantakyi, Anas made the request through Lawyer Kwame Gyan [A law lecturer at the University of Ghana] in which $100,000 was payed but termed inadequate by Anas through which the money was refunded to Nyantakyi.

In response to these allegations, Anas Aremeyaw Anas emphatically stated that his team [Tiger Eye P.I.] has never recruited the services of Kwame Gyan in executing the launch of the Number 12 exposé, citing that CromwellGray LLP located in Cantonments, Accra has been their legal counsel at all times

“It should be noted that neither Tiger Eye P.I. nor Anas Aremeyaw Anas engaged the services of a lawyer named Kwame Gyan from the University of Ghana. At all material times, including before, during, and after the production of the Number12 documentary, Tiger Eye and Anas have exclusively retained the legal representation of CromwellGray LLP, situated in Cantonments, Accra. CromwellGray LLP has consistently acted as legal counsel for Anas in matters relating to litigation initiated by or against journalistic publications involving Anas.”

The investigative organization challenged Mr. Nyantakyi to pursue legal avenues against Lawyer Kwame Gyan to validate his claims, emphasizing Tiger Eye P.I’s denial of any connection to the purported activities.

“Tiger Eye P.I. unequivocally asserts that any purported criminal arrangement between Mr. Nyantakyi and any alleged lawyer remains solely between Mr. Nyantakyi and the purported recipient. Tiger Eye P.I. firmly denies any involvement or knowledge of such activities. Should Mr. Nyantakyi’s claims hold substance, we challenge him to pursue legal action against Lawyer Kwame Gyan, including lodging a petition with the General Legal Council, to substantiate his allegations.”

Anas also tagged Nyantakyi as “a self-confessed bribe-giver, and a bribe-taker”, making the life-ban imposed on him justifiable.

“Mr. Nyantakyi, by his admission, is a self-confessed bribe-giver, and a bribe-taker for attempting to bribe his way out of a painstaking investigation into his conduct. Per his self-confessed bribery attempt, Mr. Nyantakyi has proven that the life-ban from taking part in any kind of football-related activity at national and international level for conflict of interest and bribery offences provided for by FIFA Code of Ethics (FCE) was justified.”

Below is the full press statement released by Anas Aremeyaw Anas to deny all allegations angled towards him 

Irrespective of the happenings, Kwasi Nyantakyi is part of the nominees set to contest for the Ejisu parliamentary seat after the passing of former MP Dr. John Kumah.
