Communications director for Ghana’s Normalization Committee, Dan Kweku Yeboah has cleared the air on FIFA’s alleged clearance of embattled ex-president of the Ghana Football Association for financial mismanagement.
During an interview on Accra based Top FM Sports Show, Dan stated that the auditing team from FIFA came to Ghana to investigate financial records of Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi’s tenure as President of Ghana football.
He explained that FIFA have no interest in the monies given by governments of member countries to their FA’s. They are however interested in monies they have given to these association to help develop football.
He therefore found it surprising that FIFA would clear Mr. Nyantakyi whilst he was banned on unethical grounds.
He said “It’s laughable hearing speculations about FIFA’s clearance on Mr. Nyantakyi, if indeed he’s been cleared, then the ban on him should be lifted now”.
“Mr. Nyantakyi was banned by FIFA because of ethical reasons. Per the Anas expose, Nyantakyi was seen taking money which could either be a gift or bribe and is against the code and ethics of FIFA”, Dan Yeboah further explained.
