Security Analyst and Chief Executive Officer of Irbard Security Consult Irbard Ibrahim has urged President Akufo-Addo not to be distracted by the “movies and online petition” being staged by Anas Aremeyaw Anas over former Ghana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi.
This comes after the undercover investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw announced he has begun an online petition to get the former President of the GFA behind bars.
Anas who is alarmed that months after his undercover Number 12 exposé was premiered, no proper action has been taken against Mr. Nyantakyi by the government of Ghana.
Nyantakyi who was captured in the Number 12 exposé engaging in some alleged shady deals had already been banned for life by the world football governing body, FIFA.
Anas believes, the online petition will compel the appropriate authorities to make the man who was once a member on CAF’s Executive Committee to face the criminal charges he deserves.
But in a post-rebuttal sighted by MyNewsGh.com, Mr Ibrahim said “not even 1 million signatures in support of this bogus online petition against Nyantakyi should make government lose focus from fulfilling its promises to the good people of Ghana.”
Irbard urged Akufo-Addo and his government to be “smart” on the matter.
“I humbly urge His Excellency and his Government to be smart enough not to be swayed by so called petitions and exposes that keep popping up ever so often.”
“I am not God, but when you read between the lines, you’ll realize that this could be a ploy hatched in the bowels or dead of the night to distract Government from realizing its campaign promises to the good people of Ghana.” he added.
“If this Government continues to follow such leads, by the time it says Jack, it is out of power.
Someone accused President Kwesi Nyantakyi based on a staged movie. Government has taken an action in that regard. What is the essence of teaching the Attorney General her job?
“Nana Addo has very little time left to present concrete achievements to the good people of Ghana in his re-election bid and he and his appointees should not allow themselves to be swayed and distracted by these so-called petitions and exposes.
Not even one million signatures should stampede Government into veering off its natural course. This and others could be baits meant to distract.
“I urge the good people of Ghana to stick to substance rather than sensationalism on all national issues. A word to the wise is enough!” he ended.
