- According to him, the Chief Imam did nothing to halt the release of the video
- This was in reaction to allegations made by popular sports journalist, Mohammed Amin Lamptey
A spokesman for Sheikh Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Aremeyaw Shaibu, has reacted to rumours of his involvement in the release of Number 12, Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ investigative work on sports in Ghana.
Speaking with Class News’ Blessed Sogah, Sheikh Aremeyaw Shaibu said that the allegations are false and should be disregarded.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a sports journalist, Mohammed Amin Lamptey, said the Chief Imam tried to halt it because two Muslims were captured in the video.
In an interview with an Accra-based radio station, he said that the Chief Imam wanted to protect the former president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, a Muslim.
Sheikh Shaibu however said that “I’ve never known of any meeting, the Chief Imam is an elder and he has no business wanting to know what happened.
So, we want to indicate to the whole world that the Chief Imam never made an attempt to stop Anas Aremeyaw Anas from going ahead with the premiering of that exposé; we want to support every effort in the country led by the chief imam, any effort government is doing to rid our country of this canker of corruption, we’re so committed and we want to support any institution that goes on to do so.”
Kwesi Nyantakyi lost his positions as president of the GFA, the West African Football Union (WAFU), and a member of FIFA’s executive council, following the release of Number 12.
The video revealed acts of corruption among Ghanaian football administrators in the execution of their duties.
