Ghana FA suffering from past experiences of corruption - Nyantakyi

Posted On Saturday, 24th November 2012

Ghana FA boss Kwasi Nyantakyi

By Ameenu Shardow

Ghana FA boss Kwasi Nyantakyi says his administration is suffering from an adage perception of corruption in football.

There are widespread believes that officials of the association are using their position to line their pockets.

Critics have used transactions such as the sponsorship of the Ghana Premier League as the basis for their entrenched stand of corruption in the Ghana FA.

Others have also used the findings of the Justice Gbadegbe probe where football officials illegally benefitted from player transfers as their reference.

But Nyantakyi in an extensive interview with Kumasi-based Angel FM says this ‘false’ perception is fuelled by the experiences of the past.

“People always say that we are stealing monies from the Ghana FA,” he said.

“This is not possible because we are being audited by the same audit service that handles the Presidency.

“We go to Congress every year where our financial status is made known and so far no one has raised the issue of corruption.

“I believe this perception is due to experiences in the past. But things have changed.

“Maybe it is possible for someone to steal money but you will be found out eventually.”

    this guy thinks we are kiddies. hw3, there are many ways to skin a cat, u hear?…why must gfa head even own a club in the premiership. this is a conflict of interest. DONT YOU THINK?

    • A concerned citizen says:

      Don’t be ignorant every FA member has to be an administrator or an executive member of a football club. Perception means that it is just a mere speculation but they are not real in actual sense. If any body thinks some one is bribing his way through then you guys must come out clean or keep quiet.

    We are not talking about u stealing from the fa coffers but taking bribes from players in order to be called into the national team and that’s a fact because according to your own admission,u have being taking half fit players to tournaments and if there is no underhand dealings,there is no way these half fit players will get the chance to feature for the nation then those that deserves to be call!!! Mr. President ,can u also tell us why your administration which help quincy to switch nationality to feature for our dear nation has all of a sudden becomes your no 1 enemy?? Is there any reason for that or has he refused to grease your palms because that’s what a lot of ghanaian football fans believe!!! U have such innocent face but i don’t believe u for once because there is no smoke without fire and u better called quincy and other players who deserves to be called quick and sharp before ……… viva the revolutionciooooo!!!!
