Former President of the Ghana Football Association, Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi seem not to bow down to the venom of the most sort after investigative journalist in Africa – Anas Aremeyaw Anas having sued the undercover journalist [Anas] and his Tiger Eye PI team as well as Ahmed Hussein Soale for damaging his reputation through secret video recording.

In a suit filed at an Accra High Court, Mr. Nyantakyi claim that Anas and his investigative team “cunningly and mischievously edited his interactions with them in a bid to achieve their grand scheme of proving that they uncovered, through their investigations, corrupt activities of the GFA and its officials, including him (Nyantakyi).

According to the former GFA President the decision by Anas and his team [Tiger Eye PI] to secretly record him and subsequently premiere it to the general public had subjected him to public ridicule and hatred.

He further argues that the secret recording of his conversation with Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team amounts to breach of his fundamental human right to privacy and confidentiality.

“I have accordingly been vilified, lampooned, humiliated and treated with disdain, scorn, opprobrium and disrespect following the publication of the secret recordings of edited, one sided and/or prejudiced versions of meetings between the respondents and myself,” the suit stated.

According to Mr. Nyantakyi, premiering the secretly recorded video in public showing him being corrupted by the respondents has exposed him to public ridicule, contempt, and caustic adverse comment[s] which results in the violation of his right to dignity.

The former FIFA Executive member [Kwesi Nyantakyi] is therefore seeking a declaration that the secret recording of his conversations and interactions with Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team and publishing same without his consent and authority violates his fundamental human right to privacy and confidentiality in his dealings with others.

Meanwhile, former President of the Ghana Football Association Dr. Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe has averred that Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi is likely to escape the much awaited FIFA punishment after the 90 day ban due to how things are unfolding:

“If we are not careful, eventually FIFA can set him free, mark my words,” Dr. Tamakloe voiced out on Starr Chat with Bola Ray.

“I am saying that because what has he really done so far, what have we come out with that Kwesi Nyantakyi has done this or that wrongly,” he quizzed.

“He was accused by people and his name was mentioned in the Anas video there is no evidence,” he added.
