The former Youth and Sports Minister,Elvis Afriyie Ankrah has expressed his disappointment for the embarrassment suffered by former President of Ghana Football Association, Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi.
The former GFA chief was seen on video negotiating controversial deals in an under cover investigation.
The investigation was done by the Tiger Eye Group led by Anas Aremyaw Anas.
According to the former Sports Minister, former FIFA Council Member reign had some positives and that he should have left his post when the applause was loud.
“I think that Kwesi Nyantakyi should have left when applauds was loudest. If he is being honest with himself, he had given clear indications that he was going to leave,” Afriyie Ankrah said on Point Blank on Citi Eyewitness News Wednesday night.
“This should be a lesson to all of us, especially politicians who hold elective positions; you leave when the applause is loudest. All these things wouldn’t have gotten this bad if he had stuck with his decision to leave.
“That’s the lesson we can all draw from this. You leave when the applause is loudest. Despite his foibles, he had done so much and he should have just left,” he added.
Mr. Afriyie was Ghana’s Minister for Youth and Sports in 2014 and also cried on camera during the 2014 World Cup Investigations by the Justice Dzamefe Commission of Inquiry.
