Kofi Boakye tasked to clear GFA rot

The Ghana Football Association has tasked tough-talking Police commissioner Kofi Boakye to deal with a bribery scandal involving more than 70 referees and several officials.

In a statement signed by the Association’s General Secretary Isaac Addo assured the public, COP Kofi Boakye who is Chairman of the Ethics Committee will have a free hand to deal with rot that has sunk the GFA to its lowest ebb in history.

The GFA said it will “embrace any decision” the Ethics Committee will take during its investigations.

The FA also announced it has dissolved the Referees Appointment Committee even as the government also takes steps to dissolve the entire association.

The FA whose President Kwesi Nyantakyi resigned last Friday has also set up a five-member team to meet the government for “reform” talks.

The 8-point statement becomes the first step the shocked FA is taking to respond to a reputation crisis which has turned the nation against organisers of a game that is deemed Ghana’s number one passion.
