The move comes barely 24 hours after Anas Aremeyaw Anas released an explosive video that detailed massive corruption in Ghana football and within the football association.

The video captured scores of football referees and officials receiving bribes to influence the outcome of matches in the local leagues.

GFA President Nyatakyi was caught trying to negotiate 25 per cent commission for himself on sponsorship deals for the premier league.

He was also caught on video colluding with undercover investigators - who posed as investors - in an elaborate scheme to bribe President Akufo-Addo and Bawumia with millions in exchange for lucrative government contracts. For his effort, he was an given alleged $65,000 advance fee.

The Anas video provoked a fireball of controversy and outrage in the public, with many Ghanaians calling on Nyantakyi to step down.

When the issue was raised in parliament on Thursday, MPs quickly adopted a bi-partisan decision to probe the matter. Some MPs, including Samson Ahi, also joined calls for the GFA president to resign.

"We all agree we are fighting corruption and parliament should be the authority that is most interested, in view of it being a representative body of the entire people of Ghana," the speaker of parliament, Mike Oquaye, was quoted as saying by myjoyonline.com, as he approved the motion for a probe.
