5 journalists who will feel vindicated after Anas' revelations of rot in Ghana football

5 journalists who will feel vindicated after Anas' revelations of rot in Ghana football

Yen.com.gh is bringing you the continuous coverage of Anas' investigative piece and the analysis from the fallout.

It was suspected that the corruption in football administration was deep yet there is a whole new level of shock that the video adds.

However, some journalists who have years of on-the-record criticisms of Nyantakyi might not be as shocked as the rest of Ghanaians. Perhaps, they may even feel vindicated.

As follows, these are five of the brave sports journalists:

Patrick Osei Agyemang

His will be the first name on any list at all. Agyemang, also known as Countryman Songo, had a very fiery and volatile with Kwesi Nyantakyi. Songo constantly accused Nyantakyi of mismanagement and sometimes, bluntly intimated that the FA president was a thief.

Patrick 'Songo' Osei-Agyemang

Surprisingly, the former Asempa FM and Adom TV presenter has not said or done much in the wake of the Anas' video. In an impromptu interview with journalists, Songo only said "Glory be to God" in response to questions on the video.

But it will be unwise to think those are the last word we will hear from Songo on the issue.

Dan Kweku Yeboah

For about 10 years, Peace FM journalist, Dan Kweku Yeboah, has been an avowed critic of Kwesi Nyantakyi. After Ghana's first ever appearance in the World Cup in 2006, Yeboah was not very pleased about the Nyantakyi's governance of football.

Yeboah's charges against Nyantakyi have been constantly refuted by the FA boss. The journalist earned a reputation for always reading between the lines in football deals made under Nyantakyi.

He was one of the first Ghanaian journalists in the last decade to share that the FA was ran like a mafia organisation.

Michael Oti-Adjei

Oti-Adjei is a veteran journalist of TV and newspaper. Perhaps, the most diplomatic of journalists on this list, Oti-Adjei's attacks on the FA were not explicit. He however, has a long history of decrying how local football was ran in Ghana.

When the announcement of Anas' investigative piece was made, Oti-Adjei was one of the first senior journalists in Ghana who promoted it. He has been excited to see an end of the Nyantakyi administration, as his Twitter feed indicates.

It is interesting what he would advocate next in the aftermath of Nyantakyi's reign.

Saddick Adams

Saddick Adams is a vociferous journalist with the tendency to challenge authorities. Some of these challenges have brought on attacks on his life. The Atinka FM presenter is a fierce critic not only of Nyantakyi but the entirety of the game in Ghana.

He will be most satisfied by the backlash against Nyantakyi and the FA's hierarchy. He has in recent times been calling for a total remaking of the football association.

Adams has also been a strong advocate for local football. Anas' revelation of the rot in the system will definitely have Adams making all the right noises in the weeks to come.

Gary Al-Smith

Al-Smith is a popular TV and radio journalist. He is young but very experienced in the profession of sports journalism. He has a knack for attacking the powers that be. This has made him quite unpopular with the current football administration in Ghana.

Gary Al-Smith

Al-Smith's advocacy for openness in Nyantakyi's administration is helped by Anas' documentary. For the sports reporter, the idea that the current executive committee is a solid force behind Nyamtakyi is a worrying.

As a result, Gar Al-Smith's expectation will be for the FA president to go down with a lot more people.
