Government says it is taking steps to dissolve the Ghana Football Association (GFA) following the recently aired video documentary which captures the investigation conducted into football administration by undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, titled: Number 12 When Misconduct and Greed Becomes the Norm.”
The documentary exposes the gross-malfunctioning of the GFA characterised by widespread fraud, corruption and bribery.
Government in a statement signed by Minister of Information, Mustapha Hamid, said, following the involvement of top GFA officials, NSA officials, match commissioners, football administrators and referees, it has decided to take immediate steps to have the GFA dissolved.
All officials captured in the corrupt practices have also been referred to the police for further investigation and appropriate action.
Former Minister of Youth and Sports, Nii Lante Vanderpuye, had earlier suggested that the entire GFA should be dissolved and cleansed in order to tackle corruption-related matters in Ghana football.
Mr Vanderpuye does not care if FIFA bans the country from participating in international competitions as a result of such a house-cleaning exercise.
“The government must dissolve the GFA with immediate effect and face the consequences from FIFA,” he said on Thursday, 7 June 2018.
