The Ghana Football Association (GFA) is expecting some officials of FIFA in the country, following numerous allegations of bribery and corruption in the local game.
This was disclosed the Communications Director of the GFA, Ibrahim Sannie Daara, who further revealed that the contingent from FIFA will partake in the FA’s congress slated for January 2018.
Ghanaian fans and club administrators have been on the neck of the GFA in recent years over issues of bribery and corruption in the Premier League, Division One and Division Two leagues.
In a bid to bring sanity to the game, GFA president Kwesi Nyantakyi announced last week that anyone who would be able to provide proof about a case of corruption in the local game will be rewarded with a bounty.
And the Association has taken further steps to fight the canker by inviting experts from world football governing body FIFA to help sanitize the local game.
According to Sannie Daara, the officials are expected to educate club administrators, media and all stakeholders on how best to handle such issues.
“We have invited FIFA to deal with this situation of corruption, bribery, match fixing and manipulation. So FIFA is sending some experts in this area to educate us,” he said in an interview with Starr Sports.”
“Those who will be educated will be members of the ethics committee, media men, match officials and all stakeholders who are susceptible to be influenced.”
The GFA is set to hold its congress in January next year, with a date for the commencement of the 207/18 season expected to be revealed.
