The immediate past boss of Ghana Football, Dr. Kofi Amoah, claims his personal lawyer, Frank Davies, has returned the contentious $100, 000 paid the aforementioned, in the ongoing ‘glo-scandal’.
It has emerged that the Nigerian telecom giant paid $1m cash to Frank Davies, on behalf of Dr. Kofi Amoah, ostensibly for the Ghana Football Association, on November 20, 2019, three clear days after his tenure as the president of the Fifa-appointed Normalization Committee.
Meanwhile, Kurt Okraku, a former member of the erstwhile Executive Council succeeded by the NC, has wielded the reins of power as the new president of the GFA, since Friday, October 25, 2019, TWENTY-SIX CLEAR DAYS before the suspicious $1m cash payment to Dr. Kofi Amoah and company!
In a press statement Dr. Kofi Amoah issued this afternoon, the former NC president claimed he had clean hands.
“For those who read corruption into everything, there is absolutely none here,” he claimed, having stressed that “I have directed Lawyer Frank Davies to return the $100,000 paid to him for his appreciable service to the President of the GFA and submit his invoice for same, which he has done!”
He chided the “some sections of the media” whom he accused of having “over speculated and somersaulted to inject all kinds of negative motivations and meanings …”.
Dr. Amoah contended he was of the ilk of “honorable (sic) people who consider other people to be equally honourable …”, and hinted the media should rather “have jubilated and saluted the efforts of the NC and its lawyers”.
Yet, the media scrutiny continues, given the clear conflict of interest, wrong and unprofessional payment by Glo to an entity which had no legal capacity to receive the aforementioned $1m cash, and possible breaches of the certain aspects of Ghanaian law.
It is expected that some officials of the Nigerian telecommunications giant, Dr. Kofi Amoah, Frank Davies and some GFA staff would be fielding questions from the Ghana Police, to assure the public of the rule of law in the country.
