It has emerged that the statement issued in the name of Kwesi Nyantakti, the former Ghana Football Association (GFA) boss was not original one although all the contents in the statement were from the original one. PRO for the embattled former FA boss, Dr. Martin Luther Obeng, in an exclusive interview with rainbowradioonline.com alleged that, someone who was asked to print the statement leaked it without authorization from Mr Nyantakyi. The first statement that came out was not signed by Nyantakyi but contained the name and contact details of the PRO. However, the second one which was released few minutes ago has been officially signed by Kwesi Nyantakyi. It also contained some added information which was not originally captured in the first statement. The PRO further disclosed that the lawyer for Anas who he failed to provide the name, confirmed to Kennedy Agyapong, the Assin Central MP that, he [Anas] demanded an amount of $150, 000 so he will drop the video against him. But Nyantakyi was able to raise an amount of $100, 000 and paid it to Anas. When he was pushed to give the name he declined saying, ‘’at the right time. We will provide the media with the details about the name of the lawyer. Some of the issues are currently in court and so I will not disclose some of them but we will soon address the media on them.’’ He also indicated the video from the Tiger Eye PI was doctored and that the amount given Kwesi Nyantakyi was $40,000 out of the $61,000 travelling cost he incurred for his travels to meet the fake businessmen who deceived him. ‘’I have already dealt with the circumstances under which I received the money from the Sheikh. Of key significance however, is the allegation that I received the sum of $65,000. ‘’Travel expenses for the three (3) trips came up to $61,000.00 the breakdown of which is as follows: I. Cost of air ticket for two (2) trips, board and lodging -$10,000.00 II. Cost of first-class air tickets for three others -$26,000.00 III. Cost of board and lodging for the three others at Burj Arab Hotel Dubai for five days -$25,000.00 Total cost= $61,000.00 I was handed the sum of $40.000 only in eight (8) bundles of US$ 50 banknotes but not $65,000 which both I and the Sheikh’s agent understood to be reimbursement for the travel costs incurred by me, at the Sheikh’s request. It is very easy to confirm how much was given to me from the video tapes. The money was exposed before I was tricked to put in the bag personally. A critical review of the video clip will reveal that when the money was handed to me, there was no mention of shopping. A different video has a voice emerging from a faceless speaker saying “shopping for now”. This insertion of an over riding voice was clearly an after thought. Based on the agreement with Suale, the $40,000 was a refund and not a gift or bribe. Its disingenuous to purport to donate a gift when the donor owes a lawful debt for cost of travels’’, portions of the statement read.

The husband of woman who delivered twins at Ridge Hospital, John K.Galbuja, is claiming that the management of Ridge Hospital has refused to provide the remains of one of his twins. Speaking to Kwame Tutu on Frontline today [Monday], he said, the hospital told him his babies were premature and that the babies would be placed in an incubator,only to be told six days after delivery precisely 16thMay 2018 that, one of the babies died. Till date I have not received any feedback directly from the time the media took this issue up. “The management of Ridge hospitalhas not contacted me officially to discuss the issue whatsoever, only to hear them on radio that a mass burial has been done based on an announcement on radio after several months. They also alleged that I had run away, and they called me a number of times and I haven’t responded”, he explained. Responding to some allegations levelled against him about some documents he refused to sign, John K. Galbuja said,” No documents have been brought to him to sign. What benefits do I stand to gain if I refuse to sign? I have complied with everything the hospital has requested of me from the time that my wife was hospitalized (From 27TH MAY- 13TH JUNE)”. Adding, Mr John K. Gabulja said he hasn’t taken any legal actions against Ridge Hospital instead he is only acting based on the advice by legal practitioners.” Mr. John K. Gabulja clarified some rumours against him saying that he has not accused the hospital for stealing his baby. “My wife and I have not doubted the credibility of the management. I am for now giving the management the benefit of the doubt and only requesting for the remains of my child”, he stressed. By: Priscilla Obeng Asantewaa (Intern, Rainbow Radio)

The Public Relations Officer (PRO) for embattled former Ghana Football Association (GFA) boss has alleged that, his boss, Kwesi Nyantakyi, made a payment of $100, 000 out of the $150, 000 demanded by Anas Aremeyaw Anas so he will drop the Number 12 video against him. Dr. Martin Luther Obeng in an exclusive interview with rainbowradioonline.com alleged that, Mr Nyantakyi managed to arrange the amount but Anas refused to drop the video because the embattled GFA boss had informed others about it. He further disclosed that the lawyer for Anas who he failed to provide the name, confirmed to Kennedy Agyapong, the Assin Central MP that, he [Anas] demanded the money and had received $100, 000. When he was pushed to give the name he declined saying, ‘’at the right time. We will provide the media with the details about the name of the lawyer. Some of the issues are currently in court and so I will not disclose some of them but we will soon address the media on them.’’ Meanwhile, he has stated that the statement which has gone viral was indeed from Nyantakyi but was not the full statement. According to him, the one who was made to print the statement leaked same at the time Mr Nyantakyi was preparing to release it. He also indicated the video from the Tiger Eye PI was doctored and that the amount given Kwesi Nyantakyi was $40,000 out of the $61,000 travelling cost he incurred for his travels to meet the fake businessmen who deceived him and not a bribe as alleged. Portions of statement issued read: ‘’From voice over commentaries on the video I was reported to have accepted $65,000 in banknotes in October 2017 from a man claiming to be a member of the Qatari Royal Family (the Sheikh) who told me “that the money was for shopping” and that I then thanked the said man, “placed the banknotes into a black plastic bag” but “failed to report this large gift to the GFA” I vehemently deny the same, and wish to state that; i. it is completely false that I received $65,000 from a person claiming to be a member of the Qatari Royal Family. ii. It is also completely false that at the time the money was handed to me, I was informed “that the money was for shopping”. iii In the context of (ii) above, it is therefore false that I was handed a “large gift”. I have already dealt with the circumstances under which I received the money from the Sheikh. Of key significance however, is the allegation that I received the sum of $65,000.

The question that beats my mind is why Tiger Eye lied about the amount of money given to me. Why was the viewing public not allowed to perceive what they saw and heard on the video themselves? Why run commentaries to deceive the viewing public?’’

Private legal practitioner, lawyer David Annan, has challenged lawyer Tony Lithur to write a petition to the Judicial Service and the Chief Justice, Her Lordship Sophia Akuffo, if he was not the one who leaked his suit filed at the Divorce and Matrimonial Court. The lawyer believes the leakage may have come from the lawyer and the only way to show he was not the one will be to file a complaint before the Judicial Service for an investigation to be conducted. Social media was awash with leaks of a divorce suit filed against former Gender Minister, Nana Oye Lithur by husband Tony Lithur. The lawyer among other allegations accused the wife of being abusive and engaging in infidelity. Nana Oye Lithur came out to deny the allegations and wondered why the petition leaked. She also called on the public to give the family the privacy to deal with their challenges. Tony Lithur also expressed worry through a statement and wondered why a family matter leaked and admonished the public to give the family the privacy to deal with their challenge. Lawyer David Annan commenting on the matter described the issue as an unfortunate one. He bemoaned the leakage of documents bothering on sensitive issues and cautioned against it. Making reference to the statement purported to have been written by Kwesi Nyantakyi on the ongoing investigations into his alleged fraud by false pretenses, the lawyer described it as a ‘’criminal contempt.’’ He believes the leakage is an obstruction of justice and could effect an arrest and prosecution of individuals who may have leaked the documents. On the Tony Lithur’s case, he said the leaked copy maybe a doctored copy and when an investigation is conducted and it is established beyond reasonable doubt, then those involved could be charged for criminal contempt. ‘’The leakage of Nyantakyi’s statement was a serious one because it bothered on criminal matter. It was a serious offence. It is an offence. To sum up everything on both the Nyantakyi and Tony Lithur issues, the person involved could be charged for criminal contempt of court. They would be charged because they have interfered with the administration of justice,’’ he said.

Public Relations Officer (PRO) for Methodist Church Ghana, Very Reverend Dr. Henry Ampaw-Asiedu, has challenged men to be responsible so they will also be celebrated like mothers. The man of God said men are the head of the house and they serve as the soul and protector of the family hence the need for them to exhibit that authority by being responsible. According to the man of God, it is not every man who can be described as a father when he fails to be responsible adding, being a father is not just about having biological children but a father is someone who is responsible and takes care of his family. He believes men who take care of other children who are not their biological children are also fathers. He used the opportunity to advice mothers to stop inciting their children against their fathers. He said, ‘’I will encourage mothers to stop inciting their children against their fathers. Fathers are the backbone of the family and so, that respect should be accorded but men should also be responsible so they don’t lose the needed respect as fathers.’’

Migrants rescued from the Mediterranean and turned away by Italy and Malta have arrived in Spain's port of Valencia. Three vessels, including the Aquarius, which rescued the 630 migrants last weekend, have now docked in the harbour. Health officials, interpreters and Red Cross workers are on hand to offer support. Spain's new socialist government has promised free healthcare and says it will investigate each asylum case. "It is our duty to help avoid a humanitarian catastrophe and offer a safe port to these people, to comply with our human rights obligations," Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez said earlier this week. How are the migrants being received? An Italian coast guard ship, the Dattilo, entered the port of Valencia at 06:20 (04:20 GMT). It was carrying 274 migrants, the Italian news agency Ansa reported. On Valencia's quayside, 1,000 Red Cross workers were on hand to greet the migrants as they stepped off the ship. Police officers have also been drafted in to handle their arrival. The Aquarius itself entered the port shortly after 09:30 carrying another 106 migrants. They were seen celebrating as the ship arrived. Another Italian ship, the Orione, docked later with the rest of the migrants. Who are the migrants? The migrants spent 20 hours in overcrowded rubber dinghies before being rescued by the Aquarius. They have since spent a week in rough seas - with many suffering seasickness. "The weather was very bad unfortunately, and the sea was rough," Sophie Beau of aid organisation SOS Méditerranée told the BBC. "So people are in a bad state..., and they are really relieved to come on safe land at the moment." They come from 26 countries. Reports say the largest groups (about 150 each) are from Sudan and Nigeria, with dozens more from Eritrea, South Sudan and Algeria. Most of the rest of the 630 are from other African countries but a handful are from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Officials say the rescued migrants include 123 unaccompanied minors, 11 younger children under the age of 13 and seven pregnant women. What will happen to them now? Initially, the migrants will receive food and hygiene kits and everything else necessary to make them comfortable after weeks of hardship, Red Cross official Pedro Redon told the BBC. The pregnant women will be taken for check-ups. Everyone on board will receive psychological help and the Spanish government has promised them medical assistance. Police will have to identify them and take them to police stations to initiate immigration procedures. French President Emmanuel Macron's government will work with Spain to deal with the migrants. Spanish Deputy Prime Minister Carmen Calvo said that any migrants who wish to go to France would be allowed to do, providing they had a legitimate claim to asylum. Why the fuss about the Aquarius? The Aquarius sparked a major diplomatic row when it was left stranded on Monday. Italy's populist coalition - and in particular its interior minister, the right-wing League party leader Matteo Salvini - has taken a hard-line approach to immigration and refused to let it dock. Mr Salvini says it is unfair that countries on the frontline of the EU have had to carry most of the burden of handling the migrant influx. He said Malta should accept the Aquarius, but it refused, arguing that it fell under Italian jurisdiction. Valencia's Mayor Joan Ribo, who has offered the ship a safe berth, described Italy's decision to turn the vessel away as inhuman. He told the BBC that he hoped the city's actions would act as an "electric shock" and lead to reform of Europe's migration policies. Earlier, Mr Macron accused Italy of "irresponsibility" for turning the Aquarius away. Migration reform is likely to be a key topic at a meeting of EU leaders later this month, as many countries continue to grapple with the political fallout caused by an influx of migrants in recent years.

Former Ghana Football Association (GFA) president, Kwesi Nyantaktyi, is alleging that, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, through a third party requested an amount of $150, 000 million so he will drop the Number 12 video which captured him been ‘bribed’. The embattled lawyer is currently being investigated over alleged defrauding by false pretenses. He is also being investigated by the Bank of Ghana (BoG), EOCO, the Financial Intelligence Centre over money laundering allegations. However, Mr Nyatankyi in a statement accused the investigative journalist of demanding the money so he will drop the case. Fierce critic of Anas, Kennedy Agyapong, the MP for Assin Central, had earlier alleged that Anas demanded for the money. ‘’Let me also confirm that there was a demand on me through a third party to part with $150k for Anas to drop the videos on me. I didn’t have the said amount of money to meet his demand,’’ he stated PRESS STATEMENT BY KWESI NYANTAKYI ON THE INVESTIGATIVE REPORT BY ANAS AREMEYAW ANAS AND HIS TIGER EYE PI TEAM. 1. INTRODUCTION Good morning media and fellow Ghanaians. Thank you for the opportunity you have offered to listen and consider my responses to the investigative report on corruption in Football in Ghana by Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team. From the outset, let me state that I do not support corruption in any form. It is counterproductive and undermines the credibility of any endeavour. In the same vein, I will condemn any premeditated and deliberately contrived scheme as well as any prejudicial piece of work undertaken under the guise of fighting corruption only for purposes of pursuing the private agenda of people intended to tarnish my reputation and cause disaffection for me among members of the general public. 2. APOLOGY. I wish to first and foremost render an unqualified apology to the following very distinguished personalities. They are; i. H.EthePresidentoftheRepublicofGhana. ii. H.E. the Vice President of the Republic of Ghana. iii. H.E the former President of the Republic of Ghana. iv. Ministers and Deputy Ministers of State. v. Senior Government Officials. vi. Members of the NPP and NDC, and vii. The Football Family. I owe them my deepest apologies because in my interaction with the supposed Sheikh from Qatar and his agents, I made comments that were not responsible having regard to my stature and experience. Those comments resulted from a poor exercise of discretion arising on the spur of the moment and in the circumstances in which I interacted with the supposed Sheikh and his agents. I think I was carried away by the lies represented to me. I am deeply sorry for the inconveniences my unguarded utterances have caused you. I also apologize to well meaning and discerning Ghanaians, who I have by virtue of my indiscretion offended. I extend the same level of apology to my family, friends and associates for the anguish and hardship this issue has created for them. 3. FACTS In or about September 2017, Mr. Abdulai Alhassan (Mr. Alhassan), then Chairman of the Northern Region Football Association called and informed me that a certain Sheikh Al-Thani of Qatar (Sheikh) had expressed the interest in sponsoring the Ghana Premier League for $5m per annum for 3 years. Mr. Alhassan explained that information about the Sheikh’s interest in sponsoring the Ghana Premier League got to him from a certain Mr. Ahmed Hussein Suale (Suale) who is based in Qatar and Dubai. Mr. Alhassan told me that he knew Mr. Suale in Tamale and believed that the offer was genuine. He further informed me that Mr. Suale had been working with the Sheikh for at least 7 years for which reason the offer was worth considering. Based on the representations Suale/Alhassan/I at Coco Vanilla (a restaurant at Adjiriganor, Accra) where we discussed the subject. During the meetings Mr. Suale confirmed to both Mr. Alhassan and I that: (i) Sheikh Al-Thani wanted to set up an oil refinery in Ghana. (ii) That as a businessman, Sheikh Al-Thani had similar investments in Cote D’Ivoire, Botswana, Lesotho and other parts of Africa. (iii) The Sheikh Al-Thani was the majority shareholder of their family business known as MedGulf Construction Limited. Mr. Suale further said that in 2016, Sheikh had initiated a similar move to establish an oil refinery in Ghana. He had held discussions with the previous Government. Mr. Suale then told us that the Sheikh gave $8m in financial support to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) political party and the then President, John Mahama in December 2016 for the General Elections. Mr. Suale also said that the Sheikh was ready to offer financial support to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in mitigation of expenses incurred in the run up to the 2016 General Elections. He then sought our advice. I responded by saying that if Sheikh Al-Thani spent $8m on a party that had lost Elections, it makes sense to spend the same amount or more on the party that won the election. I further stated that the President, Vice President, Ministers and Deputy Ministers all came out of a costly election so in making the provision to offer financial support to the party, he should donate to the NPP party: • $5m in the name of (not to) the President • $3m in the name of (not to) the Vice President • $2m in the name of (not to) Minister and • $1m in the name of (not to) Deputy Minister I advised that these amounts should be paid to the NPP party subject to the political parties law. These statements were made in the spirit of a general discussion and were made believing that all present were genuine and credible. Subsequently, Suale and I met the supposed Sheikh in Dubai where I was tricked to repeat the donations in the name of the above officials. I did not know that I was being recorded. I certainly would have exercised a better discretion if I knew I was being recorded. I would request that, Tiger Eye does us a favour by playing the full videos/audios of all the meetings held with Suale. The only occasion I met the supposed Sheihk was the meeting in Dubai. The video/audio presented to the public cannot be appreciated outside the context of all the meetings and discussions held. Now, after the meetings at Coco Vanilla, Accra, Mr. Suale confirmed that Sheikh Al-Thani wanted to meet us in Dubai. They offered to provide pre- paid air tickets. Mr. Suale, however, subsequently advised that the Sheikh had requested that I pre-finance the trip and be reimbursed. I agreed and travelled to Dubai. I did not meet the Sheikh as promised. I paid for my ticket and hotel for the trip. Mr. Suale then arranged a second trip which was the only occasion I met the supposed Sheikh. Mr Suale provided me with an outboard air ticket (Dubai- Cairo) only contrary to an earlier agreement to finance an all round trip for me (Accra-Dubai-Accra). Its clearly discernible that apart from a partial leg of the trips I was owed for the rest of airfares board and lodging which were incurred at the request of Mr Suale. There was however a third trip the circumstances of which are unrelated to me personally although the Sheikh again requested through Mr. Suale that I pre-finance the trip to be reimbursed later. Since this trip does not relate to me personally, I do not think it necessary to disclose its details. I also paid for this trip. It was during my second trip to Dubai that the Sheikh gave me $40,000.00 as reimbursement for the air tickets I pre-financed for my two(2) trips and the third trip. It must be emphasized that I did not receive any other monies from the Sheikh for any other purpose. I did not receive any monies for myself or on behalf of the President, the Vice President or any other senior Government official. Let me also clarify that H.E the President, H.E. the Vice President, Ministers and Deputy Ministers and Senior Government Officials had no prior knowledge or subsequent knowledge of all the discussions contained in the video. The money given to me was a refund for my expenses which I personally funded for the trip. 4.THE ALLEGED PAYMENT OF $65,000. From voice over commentaries on the video I was reported to have accepted $65,000 in banknotes in October 2017 from a man claiming to be a member of the Qatari Royal Family (the Sheikh) who told me “that the money was for shopping” and that I then thanked the said man, “placed the banknotes into a black plastic bag” but “failed to report this large gift to the GFA” I vehemently deny the same, and wish to state that; i. it is completely false that I received $65,000 from a person claiming to be a member of the Qatari Royal Family. ii. It is also completely false that at the time the money was handed to me, I was informed “that the money was for shopping”. iii In the context of (ii) above, it is therefore false that I was handed a “large gift”. I have already dealt with the circumstances under which I received the money from the Sheikh. Of key significance however, is the allegation that I received the sum of $65,000. Travel expenses for the three (3) trips came up to $61,000.00 the breakdown of which is as follows: I. Cost of air ticket for two (2) trips, board and lodging -$10,000.00 II. Cost of first-class air tickets for three others -$26,000.00 III. Cost of board and lodging for the three others at Burj Arab Hotel Dubai for five days -$25,000.00 Total cost= $61,000.00 I was handed the sum of $40.000 only in eight (8) bundles of US$ 50 banknotes but not $65,000 which both I and the Sheikh’s agent understood to be reimbursement for the travel costs incurred by me, at the Sheikh’s request. It is very easy to confirm how much was given to me from the video tapes. The money was exposed before I was tricked to put in the bag personally. A critical review of the video clip will reveal that when the money was handed to me, there was no mention of shopping. A different video has a voice emerging from a faceless speaker saying “shopping for now”. This insertion of an over riding voice was clearly an after thought. Based on the agreement with Suale, the $40,000 was a refund and not a gift or bribe. Its disingenuous to purport to donate a gift when the donor owes a lawful debt for cost of travels. The question that beats my mind is why Tiger Eye lied about the amount of money given to me. Why was the viewing public not allowed to perceive what they saw and heard on the video themselves? Why run commentaries to deceive the viewing public? ii. Namax It is again alleged from voices on the video that, I personally negotiated a $15m sponsorship agreement between Ghana Football Association (GFA) and an apparent Qatari trading Company and that I intended that this money would be received by an agency named Namax, which is beneficially controlled by me. This is false. At all times material to this matter I never negotiated any sponsorship agreement between the GFA and any Qatari Trading Company. I met with the Sheikh’s agent, Suale over a period of one (1) month and with the supposed Sheikh (only once) during which meetings, I advised that all sponsorships for the GFA are preceded by sponsorship proposals for which reason it was necessary for the Sheikh to present a written sponsorship proposal to the GFA for consideration. I have no interest whatsoever in NAMAX. It is regrettable that the Tiger Eye could not ascertain that from the most rudimentary of checks. The mischief inherent in the suggestion that I advised that the sponsorship money be paid to an entity known as NAMAX is obvious when account is taken of the fact that there was no sponsorship proposal sent to the GFA as advised. For this reason, no contract signed between the GFA and the proposed sponsor. The effect is that any discussion as to monies to be paid through NAMAX or the Savings and Loans company for or on behalf of the GFA was pointless. I recall, advising, when Suale suggested to me that the sponsorship money would most likely be paid in CASH to the GFA that because the anti- money laundering rules would not support his suggested mode of payment to the GFA, the following options could be employed; i. To open a bank account in Ghana to which the money should be paid, or ii. To deposit the money with a Savings and Loans Company with a letter detailing the purpose for which it was transferred. I accordingly advised that the money would be transferred to the GFA only after the contract with the GFA is signed. iii. Formation of a company as agent. It is also alleged in the video, that I said I would form a Company to be an agency which would negotiate between the GFA and the Qatari Company and that this would be cool money. That I would charge between 20% and 25% with me and the Qatari Company agreeing whether various people would get a percentage with the effect that I would have benefitted by $4.5m. The videos do not support this. The story is constructed with my voice recording from a different discussion on a most probably different subject. The point is credible if account is taken of the fact that basic arithmetics would have revealed that there was no way, assuming the allegation to be correct that I would have made financial gains in the sum of $4.5m. By simple arithmetical calculation 20% of $15m = $3m and 25% of $15m = $3.7m. I also reject all fabricated emails constructed from my account to implicate me in a wrong-doing. I have evidence that at least on five (5) occasions during the period under review, some person[s] gained unauthorized access to my email account. The avowed aim of theTiger Eye Team being mischief, my belief is that my email account was hacked with the deliberate aim of tarnishing my reputation. iv.Memorandum of understanding. It is also alleged in the video that Tiger Eyes investigations reveal that I drew up a Memorandum of Understanding to outline the sponsorship arrangement with Namax and signed as President of the Ghana FA. Tiger Eye must have extracted my name, title and signature somewhere which was then cloned to an agreement between their company and Namax. The point I have just made is obvious when account is taken of the description accompanying the signature. It is unthinkable that I will be signing a document in my capacity as the GFA President when the GFA is not a party to the document. v. Middleman. I have also heard, I said that I put myself as the middleman for the sponsorship deal with a view to taking a large commission that would deprive the GFA of which I was President of significant sums. This is ridiculous. Having advised that an agency be appointed to manage the sponsorship agreement between the GFA and the Sheikh (which is the usual practice) this accusation against me is without substance. I further advised that the cost of activation by the agent should not be part of the US$15m proposed sponsorship amount. The MOU bears that out. 5. CONCLUSION. Let me also confirm that there was a demand on me through a third party to part with $150k for Anas to drop the videos on me. I didn’t have the said amount of money to meet his demand. My humble request to the Ghanaian public now is this, having heard my side, whatever your view is, please tell Anas to let you have the benefit of the full video devoid of his prior commentary and advice. You are capable of understanding things yourself. Unfortunately, I do not have a video to show you because I dealt with people I trusted to be businessmen because they were introduced to me by a person I knew well. I have learnt the bitter way that the fact you trust someone does not mean you must trust who they trust. I assure all my friends and loved ones that I am determined to deal with this matter in accordance with the law as well as the most ethical and professional standards.
