Former president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi has been slapped with three charges including fraud.

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

Principal State Attorney Victoria Asiedua told an Accra High Court Wednesday that the two individuals executed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on behalf of a non-existent company claiming to be attracting sponsorship for the Ghana Premier League.

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 dollars for his Deputy with the rest reserved for the 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.
