Akua Donkor has filed suit at the Supreme Court of Ghana asking for the President and his vice to be ordered to step down.
The founder of the GFP argues in her suit that since the duo are mentioned in Anas’ ‘Number 12’ video, they ought to step down for investigations to be carried out into the allegations of corruption.
Donkor’s suit names the Attorney General as defendant and calls on the court to order her to make the two to step down.
“Plaintiff avers that this Honourable Court should compel or order the defendant to advise the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to step down from the highest seat to allow investigations to be conducted into the Kwesi Nyantakyi and others’ corruption video shown recently by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas since their names were mentioned in the said video,” she said in her writ.
“Plaintiff avers that to be fair and unbiased, in carrying out investigation into the incidence where Kwesi Nyantakyi is at the centre of controversies, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the President of the Republic of Ghana and his Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia must immediately step down from their post as President and Vice President respectively before the truth is revealed since their names were mentioned in the said corruption video.” it added.
The ‘Number 12’ investigative video by Anas Aremeyaw Anas investigated corruption in football in Ghana and found former GFA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi at the centre of a corrupt system racked top to bottom with pay for play.
Before the video was premiered earlier this month, Anas showed excerpts to the President, who immediately ordered an investigation into the matter which led to Nyantakyi’s arrest.
Government is currently in the process of dissolving the FA but according to Akua Donkor, the President and Bawumia have both been tainted and need to step down.
