Afriyie-Ankrah threatens legal action over claims of sex with actress Jackie Appiah at World Cup

Minister for Youth and Sports and Jackie Appiah Cup


Ghana's ex-sports minister Elvis Afriyie-Ankrah has threatened legal action following accusation of him bedding a Ghanaian actress at the 2014 World Cup vehemently denying that he was engaged in a sex scandal.

Some individuals have alleged that they have a video evidence of actress cum Ghanaian ambassador Jackie Appiah to the Brazil 2014 World Cup having sex with Elvis Afriyie Ankrah in Brazil.

However, the former Minister who hired the ambassadors purposely to raise funds for the Black Stars described as “stupid” for someone to think he engaged in such an act.

According to him, though he airlifted the ambassadors to Brazil he never set eyes on Jackie and same as Becca who was also accused of having sexual intercourse with Black Stars midfielder, Agyemang Badu.

“I have heard all kinds of stories and it’s incredible. The only time I went to the ambassadors’ hotel, I went with two of my colleagues and it was the old footballers who were there [at the hotel]. The female ambassadors and John Dumelo had gone to town.

“…For the entire period we have been in Brazil till now, I have not set my eyes on these female ambassadors [Jackie and Becca]…not even ones. I did not see them, not even ones,” he said in an interview with Paul Adom-Okyere on Metro TV.

Adding that, “I was with my wife and two kids in Brazil. So how could I disrespect her? Assuming she [wife] was not with me and hearing all these stories…though she believes in me but she is human. I did not set eyes on them [Jackie and Becca]”. Not from a distance…I don’t have their numbers, both local and Brazil. I have never spoken to them before. Why would someone manufacture a story like that to the extent that they claim they have a tape? This is beyond foolishness”.

Speaking on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah opined that photograph circulating of him, Jackie, Becca and Dumelo allegedly to be having some fun in Brazil at a beach is a total fabrication.

“We took that picture at the Labadi beach in Accra when I appointed them as ambassadors,” he said.

He also rubbished claims that Becca spent a night time with Emmanuel Agyemang Badu in his hotel room.

"The ambassadors never came near the team. FIFA security did not allow anyone without accreditation to get closer near the player, not even in their hotel," Afriyie said.

"Even me, I struggled in some point in time to get closer to the team. So how could Becca spend the night with Agyemang Badu in his hotel room while she doesn’t have an accreditation?” he questioned.

Elvis hinted that, he will soon take legal actions against the indicters.

"This is absolutely not right,” Afriyie fumed.

    Stupid fool, do you have the normal human sense and conscience to know what is right and what is wrong? so all of went to Brazil with your wives and children's with our tax payers money, and yet still, you were telling this players that there was no money to pay them their appearance fees? but all this foolish committee and GFA members had tax payers money to take their wives, children's and girl friends to Brazil? Ah indeed God save mother Ghana from this bunch of greedy bastards. Sulley should have rather slap the minister and the GFA president and not Mr Parker.

    So u went to Brazil with your family right? Who paid for their airfare, shopping, accodomations, food and other stuff? Can u give us the vivid account of how u sponsored them to Brazil? If u want us to believe in what u saying, give us a clear account of your stewardship in Brazil! U went to Brazil with your wife and kids chilling in a business class at the tax payers expenses whiles poor Ghanaians has no food to eat! U wen to Brazil with your wife, kids a and other friends and families on a stressed poor Ghanaian TAC payers monies whiles the average Ghanaian has no electricity nor portable water to drink! Why are u and your likes such a GREED LY MONSTERS? WHY? U made your brother YAW AMPOFO ANKRAH the defacto traveling agent who naively and incompetently organized the most disastrous WC campaign ever!! U went to Brazil as a gov official and on the government account to do government business and u went there with your family to do what? Are u there as a minister of state to DO GOV WORK been paid from the government accounts or there to do family business? Mister, u have no shame at all and I wish u can be a lil sober and meditate upon all the disgrace u brought to us a nation! According to u, u even struggled to get near the team and the question to u is why? Didn't u have an accredition as a team member? If u struggled to get near team as a team leader, then it means u are simply incompetent and u went to Brazil just for your own parochial interests and not for Ghana interests and it ll be the right thing to do by returning all the monies u were paid from the gov coffins! U are very disgraceful man for TOYING with the heart of 25 million ghanaians whose only source of joy is to enjoy their national team for them to forget all the economic hardships the likes of u and other corrupted gov has brought to the good people of this country! So what was your DUTIES THEN IN BRAZIL because according to your own admissions, u struggled to get to the team and that tells me that u didn't play any role but was still get your per diem! A very shameful and naive remarks from a supposedly educated minister! Common sense or EFIE NYANSA are quite different from SCHOOL NYANSA and this man has clearly shown us that, he has only BOOK SENSE but has no EFIE NYANSA based on his submission from his amauterish rantings here! All his admissions shows a man who lacks integrity, creditability and very immature as well! So this is your take on this issue? This man has no brains and he can't even lie properly! This should serve as a warning to us in the future that, WE SHOULD BECAREFUL NOT TO MAKE ANY EMPTY OMOTUO BOWL a minister! This guy is one hell of incompetent state official and 50 of this guy can collapse our nation! At least we deserve better!

    They will tell you they got the finance of their family to Brazil from friends donation. So you went with your wife and left her for FAST ONE with jackie. How come you never visited these so called ambassadors after you have sent them there. You would have visited them to atleast find out if everything was ok. So to say you never set you eyes on them reminds me of a similar situation where somebody also said' IT WAS LATER THAT ONE OF MY CHILDREN DREW MY ATTENTION TO THE FACT THAT WE DID NOT HAVE GARAGE IN THAT HOUSE' hahahaha!
