“Fire for Fire” host Countryman Songo was sacked live on Adom TV by the Multimedia group during one of his shows where it was reported that opened too much fire on the embattled President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi.
Countryman Songo accused Kwesi Nyantakyi of doing nothing but rather spending Ghana’s money and as well blamed the poor performance, in fact, defunct nature of the Ghana Premier League.
According to him, Nyantakyi was not credible enough to continue occupying the seat as the GFA President.
However, Multimedia intervened and got Kwesi Nyantakyi to drop the legal suit.
Fearing the financial consequences of the company, Multimedia had no choice than to dismiss Songo, in order that he would not make further accusations about Nyantakyi to land them in trouble.
Though Songo was sacked also because he did not have concrete evidence of all the accusations he was making against Nyantakyi, he seems to be vindicated now.
His employment was on the line, and his livelihood shaky, but this did not prevent Songo from speaking the truth he knew about Kwesi Nyantakyi. His boldness could best be described as “speaking the truth even if it means one’s death” which only few people in the world can do.
On May 22, 2018, President Akufo-Addo ordered for the arrest of Kwesi Nyantakyi, because as Songo had been saying earlier, he was not fit to continue as the GFA President.
Nyantakyi has reportedly handed himself over to the police for further investigations.
