Ejisu by-election: Voting for Kwesi Nyantakyi as MP is an endorsement of corruption – Lecturer

A Senior Lecturer at the Akenten Appiah-Menka University of Skills Training and Entrepreneurial Development (AAMUSTED), Aaron Kumah, has expressed serious reservations regarding the suitability of former Ghana Football Association (GFA) president, Kwesi Nyantakyi, to run for the vacant parliamentary seat in Ejisu under the banner of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Mr. Kumah has underscored that Nyantakyi’s candidacy should have been disqualified on the grounds of the corruption charges he is currently facing, which ultimately led to his resignation as GFA president.

He has emphasized the critical importance of Nyantakyi clearing his name in court from the corruption allegations before considering a bid for public office.

During a panel discussion on Oyerepa Breakfast Time on April 10, 2024.Mr. Kumah said:

“Kwesi Nyantakyi achieved a lot for Ghana during his tenure as GFA president, but there is a corruption tag against him.

“He was accused of being corrupt with supported evidence, leading to FIFA’s banishment. So, allowing Nyantakyi to contest the election…and if Ejisu residents vote for him, would imply that we don’t care about corruption. It is a critical issue, and I am surprised by his decision to seek public office without clearing his name first,”

Expressing concern over the implications of Nyantakyi’s candidacy, Kumah pointed out that the NPP’s endorsement of his candidacy could be perceived as support for corruption.

“He needs to first redeem himself from the court of the corruption tag,” he added.
