- Parliament has set up a special committee to investigate revelations of corruption at the GFA
- The speaker of parliament believes it is very important to have this investigation done
- So far, the president has dissolved the GFA with immediate effect
A committee has been set up by parliament to investigate cases of corruption at the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
The speaker of parliament, Prof. Mike Oquaye, says this special committee will look into the bribery revelations shown in a documentary by an undercover journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
The president of the republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has dissolved the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
Just 25 hours after the premiering of the explosive video by the investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, the president ordered for all activities within the association to be suspended with immediate effect.
In fact, the video by Anas saw Kwesi Nyantaki grabbing wads of dollars which totals $65,000 from investors who wish to win road contracts from the president and his vice.
The sports minister, Isaac Asiama, confirmed this developing story explaining what the dissolution means to Joy FM.
"When we say the FA is dissolved it means all functions, all activities are all dissolved," the sports minister said in an interview with Joy FM.
The relevance for this committee has been questioned especially when Ghanaians are so angry at the GFA following the revelation by Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Meanwhile, the embattled president of the dissolved GFA, Kwesi Nyantakyi is bound to be thrown in prison based on such drastic action by the president.
From the look of things, the presidency is terrible mad about the stench of corruption at the football association and thinks the best way to uproot this rot is by collapsing the entire association.
