Ghanaian government to dissolve football association after bribery allegations

The GFA said in a statement that it would co-operate with any investigation.

Liverpool closing in on Nabil Fekir deal with Lyon
Fekir is expected to leave his boyhood club this summer has reportedly told Lyon that he would prefer a move to Liverpool . Shaqiri, 26, has a release clause of just £12m after Stoke were relegated to the Championship.


The two-hour documentary, When Greed and Corruption Become the Norm by undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, was provided to the authorities last month before being screened in public for the first time on Wednesday.

The GFA statement was, however, silent on the specific steps and disciplinary procedures it intends to take against individuals named in the documentary, including Nyantakyi, who is seen on video negotiating a 25 percent slash of a sponsorship deal meant for the federation.

Specifically, Nyantakyi requested $5-million for Akufo-Addo, $3-million for Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia, $2-million for the roads minister, $1-million for a deputy roads minister, and another $1-million for him and one of his aides. All the national teams represent Ghana and they sing Ghana National anthem, and so the government comes in. "It's a sad day for Ghana football and I believe there's an urgent need to clean up our football administration", 42-year old soccer enthusiast Michael Blagogee told Reuters as he exited the auditorium holding his head.

Football is by far the most popular sport in Ghana, and while the Black Stars failed to reach this year's World Cup finals, they were quarterfinalists in South Africa in 2010.

The film's revelations have also led to Mr Nyantakyi being put under investigation for fraudulently using Ghana's President Nana Akufo-Addo's name - by order of the president himself.
