The Greater Accra Regional Football Association Chairman, Eddie Kormieteh Doku has reacted to the latest investigative exposé by ace undercover journalist, Anas Aremeyaw alleging acts of corruption by some match officials and senior officials of the football governing body.
In Wednesday’s premiere of the shocking video, Mr Doku who doubles as the Referees Appointment Committee Chairman, was captured receiving an unspecified amount of money after an alleged agreement to influence selection of Hearts of Oak winger Patrick Razak into the Black B ahead of last year's WAFU Zone B tournament.
However Mr Doku has downplayed the claims and has threatened legal action upon return from Iceland, where he is supervising the Black Stars’ friendly game against the Strákarnir okkar.
Read the full statement:
“Good morning all. I normally do not encourage anything like this on this platform. But please allow me this once.
I am with the Black Stars in Iceland and received a video clip of myself in the Anas series receiving money in the open in front of the RFA office.
Please, it is not true what the caption says, that I am being bribed to influence the selection of Patrick Razak into the Black Stars B.
I am simply telling you, who serves as chairman, the truth is that I was not taking a bribe as the video seeks to portray. My lawyers are taking the matter up. I shall be back on Saturday, God willing. At least I owe you this”.
