Ghanaians shocked by alleged soccer bribery documentary

Ghanaians shocked by alleged soccer bribery documentary

A statement from the Ministry of Information said that the government is "shocked and outraged" by the contents of the investigations undertaken by journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

"I gravely associated the highest office of the land -the presidency- with private discussions I had with "scammers" who deceived me into thinking they were genuine persons interested in investing in our country", Nyantakyi said in his resignation letter sent to the GFA General Secretary.

Ghana has said it will dissolve its national football association after Kwesi Nyantakyi was filmed apparently accepting a "cash gift".

Specifically, Nyantakyi requested $5 million for Akufo-Addo, $3 million for Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, $2 million for the roads minister, $1 million for a deputy roads minister and another $1 million for him and one of his aides. During this time, Mr. Nyantakyi is banned from all football activities at both national and worldwide level (administrative, sports or any other).

The investigative documentary titled "Number 12: 'When Greed and Corruption Become the Norm" exposes corruption in football administration in Ghana and other parts of Africa.

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

"Having regard to the widespread nature of the apparent rot involving top GFA officials, NSA [National Sports Authority] officials, match commissioners, football administrators and referees, government has chose to take immediate steps to have the GFA dissolved", he said.

One of the harshest offenses shown was carried out by Kwesi Nyantakyi, the president of GFA and a Federation Internationale de Football Association council member, who is seen taking $65,000 from Anas' men.

He said the government would soon announce provisional measures to govern football activities until a new association could be formed.

Ghana also risk being suspended from the 2026 World Cup hosting vote next week, when it had been expected to vote for fellow African country Morocco against the joint bid of the United States, Canada and Mexico.
