I Will Restore Kwesi Nyantakyi As GFA Boss If I Am The President - Yahaya Mohammed
Aduana Stars striker, Yahaya Mohammed says he would have to restore Kwesi Nyantakyi as the president of the Ghana Football Association if he was the president of the country.
Mr Nyantakyi was slapped with a 90-day ban by the Ethics Committee of FIFA on Friday and was forced to quit as the GFA boss and on Monday, the astute lawyer relinquished his position as the 1st vice president of CAF and FIFA Council Member.
Kwesi Nyanatkyi was caught in the "Number 12" documentary by Anas Aremeyaw Anas which was aired at the Accra International Conference Centre last week.
He was filmed soliciting monies from investors who expressed interest in sponsoring the Ghana Premier League in the name of the president, the vice president and the minister of roads with a TigerEyePI crew.
However, the renowned lawyer has come under intense pressure after the premiering of the video but the former Asante Kotoko forward has called on the public to forgive Mr Nyantakyi insisting he would have reinstated him if he was the first gentle of the land.
"Kwesi Nyantakyi has done a lot for Ghana football and I don't think he deserves what he is going through," he told Atinka FM.
"I will ask president Nana Addo to forgive Kwasi Nyantakyi for using his name to take bribe.
"Let give Kwesi Nyantakyi a second chance to run the FA again, because what happened was a mistake and we need to forgive me
"He is my biggest fan and if I am the president of Ghana, I will give Mr Nyantakyi the second chance when a total overhaul is done at the GFA and I believe things will change.
"He is somebody's father, son and a husband. Some people hate him and that is why they are behaving like that," he added.
Kwesi Nyantakyi has been charged with defrauding with false pretense and could be sentenced to 25 years in jail if found guilty.
