Ghana football head Kwesi Nyantakyi banned by Fifa over 'cash gift'

Ghana to dissolve football association over bribery allegations

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.

"The documentary exposes the gross malfunctioning of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), characterized by the widespread fraud, corruption and bribery".

"Government is shocked and outraged at the contents of the recently-aired video documentary, which captures the investigation conducted into football administration by the journalist, Anasa Aremeyaw, titled "Number 12': When Misconducted and Greed become the Norm", the statement read".

"In the said report I committed a series of errors of indiscretion".

Mr Nyantakyi has not replied to multiple requests for comment while the GFA has said it would cooperate with any investigation.

Ghana's Sports Minister Isaac Asiama has stated that the association will be "dissolved with immediate effect", Ghana Web reports.

Provisional measures will be put in place to run the sport in Ghana until a new body is formed.
