Ghana Football Association dissolved after release of Documentary Exposing Corruption

The police take over is also an apparent follow up to the Government statement issued last Thursday that it was taking steps to dissolve the Ghana Football Association, following the startling revelation in the Anas expose which found the president, Kwesi Nyantakyi and other FA members complicit.

"I hereby apologise unreservedly to the father of the Nation, H.E. Nana Akufo Addo, H.E. the Vice President, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia, Hon".

FIFA responded earlier on Friday by banning Nyantakyi from "all football-related activity" for 90 days pending an investigation with a possible further suspension of up to 45 days.

My decision is as a result of deliberations I have had with family and my associates.

"The documentary exposes the gross malfunction of the Ghana Football Association, characterized by widespread fraud, corruption, and bribery", read the statement, which was signed by Information Minister Mustapha Abdul-Hamid.

But an undercover film shows him apparently placing the $65,000 "shopping money" into a black plastic bag from a reporter pretending to be a businessman keen to invest in Ghanaian football.

"Consequently, the police are to take all such relevant measures as are necessary to ensure that the contents of the documentary are rapidly and thoroughly investigated; having regard to the widespread nature of the apparent rot involving top GFA officials, top NSA officials, match commissioners, football administrators and referees, government has made a decision to take immediate steps to have the GFA dissolved".
