Former President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi has rejected claims in #Number12, the recently aired investigated documentary that he received a $65,000 gift after meeting potential investors.
In a signed statement which sought to explain his side of the story in the investigative report on corruption in Football in Ghana by Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team, Nyantakyi says he received a “refund and not a gift or bribe” of trips he pre-financed while clarifying the amount received to be $40,000.
“It was during my second trip to Dubai that the Sheikh gave me $40,000.00 as reimbursement for the air tickets I pre-financed for my two (2) trips and the third trip.
“It must be emphasized that I did not receive any other monies from the Sheikh for any other purpose.
“The money given to me was a refund for my expenses which I personally funded for the trip,” parts of the statement released on Monday read.
