The Ghanaian government has ordered the dissolution of its national football association.

 

This followed the filming of the president of the Ghanaian Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, apparently accepting a cash gift of sixty-five thousand dollars from an undercover reporter pretending to be a businessman.

 

Ghana's Information Minister, Mustapha Abdul-Hamid, said the government decided to take immediate steps to address widespread rot in the system, adding that interim measures to govern Ghanaian football would be announced soon.

 

Nyantakyi, who is Vice-President of the Confederation of African Football and a member of the FIFA Council, has not commented on the allegations.

 

Similarly; football's world governing body, FIFA is yet to react to the decision to dissolve the Ghanaian FA and the alleged cash gift claims exposed in a documentary by Ghana’s celebrated undercover reporter Anas Aremayaw Anas.

 

This is because FIFA laws prevent government interference in football administration, and it had previously banned countries that breached the rules.
