President Kwesi Nyantakyi says he is not at fault despite rows with some Ghana Football Association colleagues and close pals in his 12-year reign.

Nyantakyi is currently at loggerheads with his deputy George Afriyie but details are still unknown.

He fell out with former Ghana FA vice Fred Pappoe and former spokesperson Randy Abbey.

Nyantakyi has also accused of masterminding the defeat of his former second-in-command Fred Crenstil in the Ghana FA Executive Committee election last year.

He is hurt outsiders see him as a 'problem child' and a difficult person to work with.

''The current vice president [George Afriyie], I don't have a problem with him, he had problems with me and I have not told him I have a problem with him, the issues came up and we have resolved them,''  Nyantakyi said on the UpFront show on the Joy News Channel on Wednesday night.

''It is strange for people to make such generalisations. I have worked with four vice presidents, so if once upon a time I have had a problem with one, can you generalise it?'' he quizzed.

''I didn't have a problem with Fred Crenstil nor Fred Pappoe, they are my friends especially Crenstil,''

''Jordan Anagbla [former GFA vice] died, so I had a problem with him before he passed away? It doesn't make sense to make such generalisation

''When people don't like you they try to find problems with you just to give you a bad name, it is unfortunate.''
