Former Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi has disclosed that he paid $100,000 of a $150,000 bribe demanded by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas to prevent the airing of the explosive documentary, Number 12, in 2018.

His fall from grace was ultimately brought about by the contentious documentary, which compelled him to resign from the FIFA Executive Council as well as his presidency of the Football Association.

According to Nyantakyi on Onua TV, Anas, through his lawyer Kwame Gyan, demanded $150,000 to halt the release of the documentary.

Nyantakyi stated that he paid $100,000, but Anas released the documentary in spite of this payment.

Despite the fact that the payments were made in installments, Nyantakyi claimed that he eventually received his money back.

“Before the video was released, a former colleague at the GFA Executive Council, Adam Munkaila, took me to Anas’ lawyers, a certain Kwame Gyan, a lecturer at the University of Ghana, Legon. I met him at his residence around Westland, and he told me Anas was his student and had informed him he needed $150,000 to kill the story. ‘I had never been to his house before,'” Nyantakyi recounted.

“After the video came out, I asked for a refund, and even the refund was done in pieces. Today, they would bring $20,000, and the next day another $10,000. They were giving me stories, but eventually, I got everything back,” Nyantakyi further explained.

This revelation came up during a conversation about his plan to run in the Ejisu by-election after Parliamentary Candidate John Kumah unexpectedly passed away.
