Report corrupt football officials for GHC20k – GFA to Ghanaians
Ghana Football Association President, Kwesi Nyantakyi says his outfit will reward anyone who will hand in core evidence of any bribery or match-fixing act with an amount of 20,000 cedis.
According to the GFA boss, there have been several calls by football administrators, referees and players claiming bribery allegations in the local game in recent years without proofs which makes them difficult to substantiate.
But with the upcoming season all these allegations when brought up must be proven with evidence for a handsome reward.
“One of the things that we will be doing come next season is to discourage corruption. This act involves two people, without one reporting, you can’t hold any one responsible. So we are putting aside GHC 20,000 as an incentive package for whoever reports with evidence,”Nyantakyi told the press.
This decision was reached when the Ghana FA held a 3-day football brainstorming summit in Cape Coast to strategize for the way forward of Ghana football.
