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".

Government, in a statement signed by Minister of Information, Dr Mustapha Abdul-Hamid, said following the involvement of top GFA officials, NSA officials, match commissioners, football administrators and referees in corruption as captured in the undercover piece, it has made a decision to take immediate steps to have the GFA dissolved.

The Ghana Football Association issued a statement last month backing their president and saying he was innocent until proven guilty.

The conduct of all GFA officials and the suspended director-general of the National Sports Authority, Robert Sarfo Mensah, was referred to police for further investigation and any "appropriate action", he added. Nyantakyi also has a role within FIFA's council, who are believed to be monitoring the situation.
