The Minister for Youth and Sports, Isaac Asiamah has stated that the Ghana football Association in its current state of corruption allegations is not fit for purpose hence the decision by government to devolve it.

According to him all structures of Ghana football in general has been put on hold in and outside the country.

He said the Ana’s exposé has provided a fertile ground for measures to be instituted to clean Ghana football of every mess.

Several high-ranking members of the GFA, including its President who just resigned Kwesi Nyantakyi, have been implicated in acts of corruption according to the expose.

Mr Asiamah who is also the Member of Parliament for Atwima Mponua in the Ashanti region has urged all citizens to be rest assured as government takes steps to rebuild Ghana football into a formidable football administration body.

Government in a statement addressed by Minister for Information, Dr Mustapha Hamid said it was taking steps for the dissolution of the GFA following the damming expose by undercover Investigative Journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

“Government will see to it that the necessary reforms are urgently undertaken to sanitise football administration in the country,” the statement added.
