Some viewers of the ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas expose' on corruption in Ghana Football on Wednesday have called for the immediate resignation of FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi.

According to them, the FA boss has no moral right to lead the association after his alleged involvement in corrupt practices.

The documentary titled #Number 12, was premiered at the International Conference Centre  Wednesday.

Mr Nyantakyi is seen in the video bragging about how influential he is and promised to pursue President Nana Addo to give the supposed investor contracts.

He also spoke of bringing Kennedy Agyapong on board. "Anthony Karbo also advised that we must make Ken Agyapong a shareholder. Ken does not fear anyone. Once we have him on our side, we will have our peace of mind."

He indicated that, that can be done by giving the president $5m, $3m to the Vice President, $2m to the Highways Minister, $1m to Anthony Karbo will take $1m while he and one Abu, will share the $1m.

He assured that he would arrange a private meeting between the supposed investor and the President. "Look, the President sold a lot of properties before winning the election. He needs money", added that “All his brothers are complaining that they don't have money. The $5m will greatly help the President".

Mr Nyantakyi was also seen taking bundles of dollars from the investor while signing an MOU with the investor.

After watching the video, some viewers described the day as a 'sad day for Ghana'.

Kofi Agyemang told Graphic Online he was shocked and out of words. He said the law of the land must work irrespective of who the culprit is.

Similarly, Mame Adjoa said Nyantakyi must be brought to book for dragging the presidency into the mud. She said Nyantakyi also exposed the President to security threat when he indicated which hotel President Nana Addo was sleeping in.

Yaw Safo congratulated Anas for a great work done. He said Anas must be given a national award for single handedly exposing corrupt practices in the country.

"Nyantakyi is a disappointment to the country. Really, can he take over Ghana with his corrupt mind? May God forgive him. We are not judging him but I think he should resign. So it is true that NDC contractors have not been paid. Why should he drag the presidency to the mud like that?".

"I now understand why the president reported Nyantakyi to the police. He should be dealt with," he added.
