The country’s football chief has refuted claims that members of the football association are sitting on timed bomb and some have travelled overseas amid reports of corruption exposure by Anas
Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi has rejected claims that a couple of people who are directly involved in day-to-day administration of the game have fled to overseas following reports that ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas has captured them in his latest work which will be made available to the world on June 6.
According to reports, high-ranking members of the association were caught on camera while engaging in corrupt practices and may never be able to recover from the damage the video will cause.
However, Nyantakyi thinks otherwise and insists he has travelled not because of a certain video but went on Caf duties.
“The only two people I know that are out of Ghana at the moment is my good self and General Secretary of GFA Isaac Addo,” Nyantakyi said.
“Both of us are on official CAF duties and we are both returning latest by Thursday. Running football is not a full-time job for the Ghana FA executive committee so if even someone travels to do his private business, how does that amount to running away?” he quizzed.
“For someone to suggest that we are [afraid of Anas or] running away is pure mischief,” he added.
In spite of this, a section of Ghanaians believe many people must be monitored in order to prevent them from leaving the shores of the country unless they prove beyond all reasonable doubt that what they are going to do outside Ghana is tangible.
