FIFA forensic audits clears Nyantakyi, Ghana FA
By Sampson Adedeji
After months of investigation into the Ghana Football Association following an alleged corruption, www.bsnsports.com.ng understands that FIFA forensic audits has finally vindicated and cleared former Ghana FA president, Kwesi Nyantakyi and his executives of any financial imbalance.
The audit conducted on the orders of the world governing body six months ago also cleared members of the Executive Committee of the GFA of any acts of malfeasance.
The FIFA auditing officials, who spent about one month in Ghana investigating the financial affairs of the federation, discovered that neither corruption nor embezzlement took place at the GFA.
The audit report concluded that the Ghana FA has only ‘perception issues’ to deal with since media reports of corruption within the federation are ‘wide off the mark’, the report said.
The audit report has been made available to the Normalisation Committee of the GFA for about two months now but it is not known why it has so far been kept secret from the public.
The report will come as a huge relief for Nyantakyi and the Executive Committee of the Ghana FA as there were suspicions of corruption within the federation.
Ghana football has been going through rough patches since the corruption allegation took centre.
Former football boss, has already took his case to Court of Arbitration for Sports ( CAS) after he was ban from all football related activities for life.
He has also sent investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw to court in Ghana claiming the violation of his human rights and also seeking damages for defamation.
