- President Akufo-Addo sacked many CEOs just before the premiering of the Anas video
- Many saw this move as a means to divert attention from the premiering
- The Anas video has been premiered with shocking scenes of top GFA officials taking huge sums of cash to influence matches
Just 24 hours before the premiere of the explosive video by Anas Aremeyaw Anas on the Ghana Football Association (GFA), massive shakeups were made at the seat of the presidency.
President Akufo-Addo sacked chief executive officers of some public institutions as well as the boss of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA).
YEN.com.gh also received a letter on the firing of the CEO of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra, Dr. Anyah.
All this happened just some few hours to the viewing of the much-anticipated video by Anas. There are suspicions that the presidency had masterminded to steer the focus on the Anas video to these critical developments - but to no avail.
We also reported of the shut down of the popular TV station - METRO TV within that same moment in time.
In fact, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) issued a press statement to this regard entreating Ghanaians not to be swayed by the "diversionary tactics" of government and that nothing will kill the attention millions of Ghanaians have given to the explosive video by Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
"The NDC is calling on all party members to completely ignore the desperate diversionary attempt of the failing and fast-sinking Akufo-Addo government to use the rather belated supposed sacking of some Chief Executive Officers of certain government-owned entities to pull a veil over the impending screening of the corrosive corruption-laden video of Anas Aremeyaw Anas,’’ a statement read.
Meanwhile, viewers of the corruption video by Anas have been struck with shock after seeing how top officials of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) including its president, Kwesi Nyantakyi, took bribes to influence both local and international matches of the Black Stars and other local leagues.
