In the wake of recent investigative exposé by ace undercover journalist, Anas Aremeyaw, the President of the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA), Cudjoe Fianoo has called for the resignation of beleaguered GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi and other senior officials at the federation caught in the video for alleged acts of corruption.
In Wednesday’s premiere of the shocking video, some officials of the GFA and football officials were seen taking bribes to influence player selection and compromise matches among others.
Nyantakyi was seen in the video outlining to agents of Anas’ TigerEyePI who posed as investors the key government officials to bribe and also the steps to take to get a strangle hold on key projects in the country, as well as suggesting a dummy financial agency that would broker a sponsorship deal for the Ghana Premier League.
Speaking to SilverFM’s Edmund Osafo Addo on morning edition of RoyalSports the GHALCA boss described the acts as shocking and disgrace, urging the GFA President and other officials caught in the video to honorably resign to preserve his integrity.
“I will advise the GFA President and other senior officials in the shocking footage to immediately resign to redeem our credibility”
“If I were him I would have resigned by now. What I saw was shocking and a big disgrace to Ghana Football”.
The documentary also captured 77 Ghanaian referees and 14 other top GFA officials including Greater Accra Regional FA boss, Eddie Doku, Eastern Regional FA boss, A. A. Lawal engaging in various acts of corruption.
“We must be the first to admit that we have let Ghanaians down. It’s sad that someone will struggle to get money to go and watch a match, only for an individual to decide the results.
“GHALCA has the capacity to salvage what’s left of football in Ghana. The investors must find the time to come together to do this”.
The GHALCA boss assured the public that FA will not cover up or shield its members but will decide on the required means to see to a smooth investigation of the football governing body.
