Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah says Anas’ exposé has helped to put in place measures to revive Ghana football.
The Anas GFA Exposé has sent shock waves through almost every Ghanaian ever since it was screen in major cities of Ghana. Over 50 referees and match officials were captured on video taking various sums of money to either fix matches or influence match outcomes.
The president of the Ghana football association was captured receiving a bribe of $65,000 from “Saudi Arabia Investors” and also scheming to bribe the president of Ghana and other high profiled personalities for contracts.
The Attorney General took steps to have the GFA dissolved and even secured an injunction from the high court to halt all the football activities.
The documentary ever since it was aired has forced several football officials out of office.
Former Ghana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi who was caught in the video resigned as the president of the association after FIFA, the world football governing body suspended him, a member of the executive committee of the FIFA for 90 days. He also resigned as CAF Vice president.
Top referees in the country have also been sanctioned for some corrupt practices with some receiving a lifetime ban.
According to Minister of Sports, the Anas exposé has helped in Ghana football reforms.
“Anas’ exposé has really helped Ghana football, now you can see everything is going on well. We hope we everything will be put in place to have our football back, we are still working on that,” he said in a press conference.
A FIFA/CAF normalization team have been set up to run football activities in the country until March next year.
