  • Nyantakyi caught on camera

Ghana has chose to dissolve its national football association a day after officials, including the body's president, were shown in a documentary taking kickbacks.

A statement from the Ministry of Information said that the government is "shocked and outraged" by the contents of the investigations undertaken by journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

"Having regard to the widespread nature of the apparent rot involving top GFA officials, NSA [National Sports Authority] officials, match commissioners, football administrators and referees, government has made a decision to take immediate steps to have the GFA dissolved", he said.

The Ministry say they have been forced to act "as a result of the pervasive nature of the rot within the GFA" and that they have "taken immediate steps to have the GFA dissolved".

Provisional measures will be put in place to run the sport in Ghana until a new body is formed.

Youth and Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah confirmed to KweséESPN that the dissolution of the football association means that all of the football activity within the country is on hold, including the domestic league.

"Every football activity in Ghana has been suspended indefinitely".

Federation Internationale de Football Association has not yet commented on whether any action will be taken over the GFA's dissolution. They will also drop out of the U20 World Cup. Nyantakyi also has a role within FIFA's council, who are believed to be monitoring the situation.

"This is by no means an admission of wrongdoing for issues on the video", Mr. Nyantakyi said in a statement sent to the GFA General Secretary on Friday.

After watching parts of the documentary last month, Ghana President Nana Akufo-Addo asked police to investigate Nyantakyi, and the soccer official was arrested.

Ghana has dissolved its football association following a BBC "Africa Eye" documentary exposing corrupt football officials in West Africa.

In the video Nyantakyi was caught taking a bribe and using President Akufo-Addo's name to engage in shady deals with some undercover journalists he thought were investors.
