Zylofon Cash, sponsor of the Ghana Premier League, has said the alleged influence peddling allegation against President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwasi Nyantakyi, will not affect the recently-signed $10 million sponsorship deal between the football administrator and the firm.
Communications Director of Zylofon Cash, Halifax Ansah-Addo, made the revelation on Accra100.5FM on Wednesday, 23 May.
President Nana Akufo-Addo on Tuesday, reported Mr Nyantakyi to the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service after watching investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ Number 12 undercover documentary, which captured Mr Nyantakyi allegedly using the president’s name to attempt to clench investor deals.
Addressing the press on the issue, Deputy Chief of Staff, Samuel Abu Jinapor, indicated that President Nana Akufo-Addo is focused on tackling corruption and every individual found guilty in the documentary, will face the law.
Mr Nyantakyi’s woes come on the heels of the signing the $10 million sponsorship deal on Thursday, 17 May 2018.
Speaking on Ghana Yensom on Accra 100.5FM on Wednesday, 23 May, Mr Ansah-Addo said: “This development won’t affect the deal at all.”
Meanwhile, Mr Nyantakyi will arrive in Ghana today to hand himself over to the CID for investigation.
Mr Nyantakyi had been in Morocco and later moved to Egypt for an official CAF assignment but has had to cut short his trip to return home to face the law.
