The case regarding the Anas video is not yet dead. In fact, the attorney general, Gloria Akufo, is expected to go after the faces seen taking bribes in the Number 12 video this month of July.

Even though a new board of the GFA has been constituted and the green light given by football regulatory body, FIFA, the quest for the prosecution of these corrupt officials is not yet over.

President of the republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has sacked the Electoral Commissioner, Charlotte Osei, together with her two deputies. The reasons for the dismissal are based on her "incompetence and misbehaviour".
