- A top member of Ghana FA says Anas' style of investigations is a total disgrace
- The GFA official is accusing Anas of trying to set him up in a corruption scandal
The Vice Chairman of the Ghana Football Association Player Status Committee is alleging that ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas tried to set him up on two occasions with bribes but failed.
According to Kofi Manu, there are several attempts by some faceless people to disgrace the FA President, Kwesi Nyantakyi and his top officials by getting them caught in bribery scandals.
Speaking on Accra-based Happy FM, the outspoken sports administrator condemned ill-tactics being used by Anas and his crew in their operations.
Mr Manu in his interaction revealed that Kwesi Nyantakyi and top GFA officials who have been targeted by Anas and his crew are very much aware and are on a high alert.
“There is this grave attempt by some football people to disgrace FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi and those around him. Anas and his people have attempted to set me up twice but on both occasions failed,” he said.
He added that, “I was offered a bribe of GHc 3,000 and another which was over GHc 20,000 to approve the floating status of some players but I rejected both. Hearts of Oak’s former operations guy called Acquah was one of those who was used to offer the money to me”.
Kofi Manu who doubles as the CEO of Techiman City FC maintained that it is about time people wake up and resist Anas and his investigations team.
“Some of us have been targeted but we are too smart to fall for their bait. In fact the mode of operation being used by Anas and his crew is so wrong and he is a disgrace. They are always offering money to people to do things while videoing them. Why don’t they show their faces too or show where monies are not received or are returned? It’s time we wake up and make him know that what he is doing is wrong.” Kofi Manu fumed.
