The Communications Director of the Ghana FA, Ibrahim Sannie Daara, has revealed that the FA is expecting a contingent of FIFA experts in Accra in January 2018 during its congress to help handle issues of bribery and match-fixing.

This comes at the back of Kwesi Nyantakyi’s announcement that whistle blowers will be rewarded once they blow the cover on corruption in Ghana football to the FA with evidence.

Consistently club owners and other stakeholders in the elite, second, third leagues have criticized and described the local game as full of corrupt individuals without any proof.

To put a stop to these allegations, the presence of FIFA corruption experts will save the image of the local league when sanity prevails.

“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. 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,” Daara told Starr Sports.
