Ghana's football association dissolved after bribery claims

"Though the GFA did not commission Tiger Eye PI to undertake this exercise and have not been provided with the opportunity of watching the documentary, we view the allegations circulating in the media very seriously and would wish to take immediate steps to address them", the FA said in a statement.

The Ghanaian government has chose to dissolve the country's football association after claims, in an undercover documentary, of bribe-taking by referees and kickbacks to top officials.

Nyantakyi has not replied to multiple requests for comment while the GFA has said it would cooperate with any investigation.

Ghana has dissolved its national football association, after its president, Kwesi Nyantakyi, was filmed apparently accepting a "cash gift".

Provisional measures will be put in place to run the sport in Ghana until a new body is formed. "The league is suspended until further notice as well as all activities and all programs of the Ghana Football Association". "The GFA dissolved", the Sports Ministed is quoted to have told Joy FM.

Federation Internationale de Football Association has not yet commented on whether any action will be taken over the GFA's dissolution.

This means Mr Nyantakyi ceases to be one of the 37 members of the FIFA Council.

The two-hour documentary, "When Greed and Corruption Become the Norm", is the work of undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, and Wednesday's public viewing was the first since it was released to the authorities last month.
