FIC deadline for information on ‘Nyantakyi dealings’ elapses today

Today [Thursday], June 14, is the deadline for all financial institutions operating with the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and its former boss, Kwesi Nyantakyi, to furnish the Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC) with information for investigations.



Investigative Journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, petitioned the FIC together with the Central Bank, the Economic and Organised Crimes Office (EOCO), and the Attorney General and Minister for Justice to investigate claims of corruption, bribery, fraud by false pretences and money laundering.


The claims are based on the Anas exposé on corruption within Ghana football administration in Ghana.

Anas wants the probe to focus largely on Mr. Nyantakyi’s stewardship of the GFA and Fountains Savings and Loans Ltd.

In the exposé, Mr. Nyantakyi is seen demonstrating to a supposed potential foreign investor how league sponsorship money could be funneled through his savings and loans company.

Mr. Nyantakyi made this disclosure when he was explaining to the potential investors that the amount involved in the deal was too huge and so could not be wired through his account.

Anas is also asking all the bodies he has also petitioned to probe Mr Nyantaky for “bribery, corruption, and fraud by false presence by abusing his office.”

Anas Aremeyaw Anas had earlier petitioned world football governing body, FIFA over Nyantakyi’s conduct, and urged it to ban him for life, although Nyantakyi is already serving a 90-day FIFA ban from football-related activities over the same matter.


Mr. Nyantakyi, who recently resigned as President of the GFA was also caught on tape plotting to fleece the FA of sponsorship money while promising supposed investors access to President Nana Akufo-Addo for a fee.

He even went ahead to outline a blueprint laden with details on how to bribe politicians in strategic positions in a bid to gain control of critical projects within the country.

The State has filed a petition to have the GFA dissolved as well as a ten-day interim injunction to enable the State to prepare adequately to deal with the rot at the GFA following revelations from the documentary.

The Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) as well as former GFA Chairman, Dr Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe, believes the stakeholders of the game should be allowed to play a significant role in what should be a restructuring process.

GHALCA, on the other hand, was seeking permission to set a date for an emergency congress, but have been turned down by the Sports Ministry.

The Attorney General however insists that the FA has deviated from its primary functions and thus must be disbanded entirely.
