Ghanaian Sports Minister made the decision to dissolve the country’s Football Association, following the lead of video footage taken by Journalist Anas Aremayaw on his recent documentary showing the President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, taking a $65 000 bribe.
The Journalist’s new documentary titled ‘When Greed and Corruption Become the Norm’ is set to reveal corruption in the Ghanaian government and association. The journalist had an undercover reporter posing to be a businessman to meet with the president of the association with the interest of investing in Ghanaian football. On the footage you can see Nyantakyi taking $65 000 from the reporter as a “cash-gift”.
The Ghanaian Sports Minister, Isaac Asiama, has confirmed that the association has been “dissolved with immediate effect”. The footage was given to authorities last month and has been publicly screened for the first time on Wednesday, 6 June. The president of the association and FIFA has not yet commented on the allegation yet.
