A former member of the Association’s Executive Committee Abdulai Alhassan also faces two charges namely conspiracy to commit fraud and fraud.

They are further alleged to have demanded $12 million from the supposed investors promising to land them major contracts in Ghana.
This money the prosecution says Mr Nyantakyi said will be distributed as follows; $5 million for the President, $3 million for the Vice President, $2 million for the Roads and Highway’s Minister, $1 million for his Deputy with the rest reserved for Mr Nyantakyi and Mr Alhassan.
The former football administrator was in 2018 busted in a documentary using the name of the President to peddle influence.
Since the documentary done by Tiger Eye PI was broadcast in June 2018, government has been under pressure to take action against the main target of the investigations, Kwesi Nyantakyi.
The AG’s office in the documents filed in court list the charges against him as conspiracy to commit fraud, fraud and corruption by a public officer.
Mr Nyantakyi was admitted to bail in the sum of ¢1 million with three sureties, one to be justified. Same conditions apply to Mr Alhassan.
They are also required to report every Friday at the police CID. The case has been adjourned to March 25 for case management conference.
