Statement: President Akufo-Addo dissolves GFA

Yesterday, ace journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas premiered his latest exposé which was centred on corrupt activities within the sports fraternity of Ghana. Over 100 sports personalities were captured in the video taking various bribes to do what they wouldn’t otherwise have done.

Some Ghanaians including journalists who went to view the ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas expose’ on corruption in Ghana Football on Wednesday have called descended on Kennedy Agyapong and the FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi — With some calling for his immediate resignation.

According to them, Kwesi Nyantakyi has no moral right to lead the association after his alleged involvement in corrupt practices.

President Akufo-Addo has dissolved Ghana Football Association Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ exposé on rampant bribery and corruption.

This comes after the public screening of the documentary at the Accra International Conference Center reduced the Association to ridicule and severe trolling on social media.

The President of the Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi was filmed collecting $65,000 from ‘investors’ to influence the president and vice-president to get road contracts.

The dissolution is likely to attract a FIFA ban as its rules oblige member associations to manage their own affairs “independently and with no influence from third parties.”

FIFA banned Nigeria in 2014 after its High Court disbanned the Football Association after a poor showing at the World Cup in Brazil. A ban would mean no Ghanaian team, including club sides, can play in regional, continental or international competitions.
