The Overlord of Waala Traditional Area, Naa Fuseini Seidu Pelpuo IV, has made a plea to President Akufo-Addo, and Ghanaians in general to forgive, the former Ghana Football Association (GFA) president, Kwesi Nyantakyi, over his alleged acts of corruption.

He was also heard using the name of President Akufo-Addo in an attempt to extort monies from supposed foreign investors.

Nyantakyi has since denied the claims and resigned his position as the GFA boss.

“I wish to apologise to my family, work colleagues, friends, associates and the people of Ghana for the disappointment my indiscretion has caused them.

This is by no means an admission of wrongdoing for issues on the video,” he said in his resignation statement.

Naa Pelpuo IV in a speech read on his behalf by Dajenn Naa, Naa Seidu Bomison Junior, when Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia paid a courtesy call on him on Friday in Wa, pleaded with the people and President Akufo-Addo “to forgive his son”.

He was also heard using the name of President Akufo-Addo in an attempt to extort monies from supposed foreign investors.

“On his [Nyantakyi] behalf, I wish to apologize through you, once again to the President of the Republic of Ghana, and all Ghanaians, for forgiveness.”

He described the corruption allegation as unfortunate and expressed regret at the pain it had brought to the nation and its football.

The Paramount Chief also appealed to the Vice President to support the only Division One Football Club in Upper West Region – Suntaa Sporting Club.
