If the NPP wins the 2024 elections, I’ll accept the position of Sports Minister – Nyantakyi

Former Ghana Football Association (GFA) President Kwesi Nyantakyi has stated that he is willing to take on the position of Minister for Youth and Sports should the New Patriotic Party (NPP) win the upcoming elections.

He declared that if Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is elected president of Ghana and the NPP is kept in power, he would take the role into consideration.

Kwesi Nyantakyi announced in an interview in Accra that he would run for parliament in the upcoming Ejisu by-elections on the NPP ticket.

“When the NPP comes to power and decides to appoint me as a Sports Minister, I may consider it. If it’s the NDC then it will be difficult.”

The football administrator admitted that he was wrong to have named them during his discussion with investigators disguised as Arab investors.

“I admit I was wrong to mention the President and his vice in that incident. I am sorry and I hope they forgive me,” Nyantakyi said on Onua TV, as quoted by Joy Sports.

“When I met the so-called Sheikh Al-Thani, I suggested to him that he needed to give money to the President and his vice. I was wrong at the time and I should not have said that. I regret those comments and I hope all including the Ministers I mentioned can forgive me.”

Recall that Nyantakyi was allegedly caught accepting cash gifts and selling influence in Anas’ “Number 12” exposé from 2018.

As a result, he was forced to resign from his role as President of the GFA and forfeit his membership in the FIFA Council and first vice presidency of CAF.

Following the exposé, FIFA punished Nyantakyi with a 500,000 Swiss Franc fine in addition to a lifetime ban.
