Former Ghana Football Association vice president George Afriyie, says he hasn’t contacted his former boss Kwesi Nyantakyi after the Anas Aremeyaw Anas video exposé in June.
According to him, even before the exposé which was aired in June, the two were not in good relationship, something he says triggered his sack as vice President of the the country’s football governing body.
“Let me tell the truth about this matter. I haven’t talked with him [Kwesi Nyantakyi] after the Anas’ exposé,” Mr. Afriyie told Kumasi based Oyerepa FM.
“Even before the Anas Exposé, I was seen as a bad person by his people. So they decided to sack me as the vice president of the FA with no reasons”
“I haven’t met him since April” he concluded.
Mr. Nyantakyi, was filmed in the undercover investigation by controversial Ghanaian journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas taking $65,000 (£48,000) from an undercover reporter pretending to be a businessman.
Soon after the ban on June 8, Nyantakyi resigned from the posts he had held with football’s world governing body, Fifa, and the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
He left his role on the Fifa Council and stepped aside from his roles with Caf including as 1st vice-president, the most senior figure at the confederation after its president, Ahmad.
As well as the Fifa suspension Nyantakyi also resigned as president of the GFA on June 8 following an executive committee meeting.
George Afriyie, was sacked by the Ghana Football Association as the vice president after three years in office after disclosing that he would contest for the 2019 Ghana Football Association Presidency.
