Ghana: the Football Federation, dissolved!

Ghana: the Football Federation, dissolved! Ghana: the Football Federation, dissolved! This is a historic decision: indeed, the Ghana Football Federation was dissolved after an investigation into corruption brought to light the questionable practices of the country's highest football body. It all started after investigative journalist Anas  Aremeyaw  Anas made a documentary on the Ghanaian proceeding.  In this documentary, more than a hundred officials are bribed, some administrators and officials cooperating directly with the chairman of the  Fed ,  Kwesi  Nyantekyi .

Politics get involved. Having heard of these images, it was the Ghanaian Minister of Information, Mustapha  Abdul-Hamid , who intervened directly to announce the dissolution with immediate effect of the Federation.  The "widespread nature of apparent decay" will therefore have overcome the mischief and the proceedings.  A police investigation is also under way and should allow us to learn more about the people concerned and the bribes affected.  Finally,  the  Ghanaian parliament has set up a committee, which will also have the task of investigating this corruption.

Often singled out, Ghanaian football is today at a very important stage, a crossroads that could allow it to start again on healthy and lasting bases.
