Former GFA Presidet Kwesi Nyantakyi is said to have seriously contemplated suicide following the release of Anas’ bombshell exposé, ‘Number 12’.
A close confidant of the disgraced football executive has revealed that Nyantakyi expressed a desire to ‘end it all’, implying taking his life, but stopped due to his children.
Nyantakyi, since being caught in the video has lost his roles at every level of football, having built power in his long tenure atop Ghana football.
He lost roles at the GFA, WAFU, CAF and Fifa and at the moment is fighting to even stay out of jail.
Speaking to mynewsgh, the source close to Nyantakyi said they did all they could to stop the airing of the video but it didn’t come to pass and after it was aired, Nyantakyi literally fell to his knees.
“My brother it was not easy for the man (Nyantakyi). It is still not easy. We organised one hundred thousand dollars and sent it to a big man who is close to Anas to kill this matter but it didn’t work out. The man is actually in pain. This is man that one day could become the president of FIFA. Now all those dreams have sublimed,” the source said.
At one point, Nyantakyi even lamented: “I am finished, what have I got to live for? But for my children I would have ended it all.”
