An incriminating documentary showing Ghana Football Association president and other executives of Ghana FA taking bribe has been released by BBC.
In the video, Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi is seen suggesting lucrative deals to undercover journalists posing as “investors”. He asked them to pay him $11 million to help grease the palms of key government officials to secure contracts. Other Ghana FA executives were also filmed accepting bribes influencing player selection for various national teams, an AFP correspondent said.
15 referees were also caught on camera accepting $100 (85 euros) to rig Ghana Premier League matches, while their assistants were given $50.
The explosive documentary titled “Number 12” was shown Wednesday at a preview attended by diplomats and politicians in Accra, Ghana. The documentary is the result of two years work by an undercover investigative journalist who goes by the pseudonym Anas Aremeyaw Anas, who is known for previously exposing graft in Ghana’s judiciary.
