Prof. Gyampo said the President "ordering an arrest in this particular matter sounds quite dictatorial."
According to him, Nana Addo in his capacity as the Commander-In-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces cannot order for the arrest of someone alleged to have committed a crime.
He said the President "ordering an arrest in this particular matter sounds quite dictatorial."
Nana Addo ordered the CID of the Ghana Police Service to arrest Kwesi Nyantakyi who was implicated in the latest undercover investigative piece by Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
According to reports, the FA boss had allegedly been caught on tape soliciting for a bribe in the name of the President Akufo-Addo and his Vice President Dr Bawumia when he met some football investors.
Deputy Chief of Staff, Abu Jinapor addressing the press said the President has the opportunity of watching the video and therefore ordered for the arrest of Nyantakyi.
But the Political Science lecturer said the arrest is to divert attention from the heat on the Minister for Communications who's embroiled in the $89 million stinking deal.
Ordering an arrest in this particular matter sounds quite dictatorial.
Perhaps it's the Press that is not reporting the action taken by the President well. I do not think the President actually ordered an arrest, he knows what is right."
