Security will not be compromised at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) as the much-talked about undercover documentary on corruption in Ghana football premieres today, June 6, 2018.
The project manager of Tiger Eye PI, Latif Abubakar, said the national security and the police are on high alert and everything is in place to ensure public safety.
“We are ready and security is tight. No one should be afraid. Everything has been put in place and the place is safe,” Latif told Francis Abban, host of Morning Starr.
The Tiger Eye PI team has already served notice everything is in place for today’s event with the lead investigator Anas Aremeyaw Anas tweeting to assure the public the show will come off.
Meanwhile, about 12,000 Ghanaians are expected to watch the investigative piece by undercover journalist Anas.
Abubakar said the Tiger Eye PI team is ready for the overwhelming number of Ghanaians who are eager to attend the various shows.
“We know Ghanaians are eager to watch how things unfolded in the whole piece which took over two years to do, as my boss himself has said. So far we expect about 12,000 people to watch the shows at the conference centre between Wednesday and Thursday,” the playwright said.
The yet-to-be aired video centres mainly on malpractices within the football fraternity and the game in the country.
Already, the President of the Ghana Football Association Kwasi Nyantakyi is facing charges for fraudulently using President Akufo-Addo’s name in the investigative piece.
Additionally, the name of some 15 Ghanaian referees have been mentioned for corrupt activities as captured in the video.
The accused referees include, James Osafo, Jason Nunoo, Kennedy Bentil, Adams Badiu, Alhassan Badiu, Safi adade, Samuel sukah and Kyereme Yeboah.
The rest are Cecil Flecther, Nathan Anafo, Harry atitonu, Umar Teni Wellington, Charles Dawouna and Rahman Salifu.
