Ghana Football Association dissolved amid corruption allegations

Ghana's football association (GFA) has pledged that it will not attempt to cover up or shield any of its members implicated in alleged acts of corruption.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) have been dissolved with immediate effect after the President of the association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, was filmed accepting a "cash gift".

The GFA said in a statement that it would co-operate with any investigation.

The Ghana Football Association however says it was not given an opportunity to watch the documentary and request the Tiger Eye PI team that produced it to furnish them with recorded material from the documentary.

Provisional measures will be put in place to run the sport in Ghana until a new body is formed.

FIFA banned Nigeria in 2014 after its High Court disbanned the Football Association after a poor showing at the World Cup in Brazil.

NTSB updates on fatal Model X crash
At this point, the NTSB has yet to determine a probable cause of the crash and is continuing to investigate the accident . The attenuator had been damaged 11 days earlier in a previous accident and hadn't been repaired, according to NTSB.

Asiamah said the decision had been a hard one to take, and is aware that it is likely to trigger some sort of action from world football's governing body FIFA, who strictly forbid the interference of government in the national federations.

Mr Nyantakyi is the second most powerful official in African football and also a member of the Fifa Council.

This follows the public screening of investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas' documentary titled Number 12 - which was premiered on Wednesday at the Accra International Conference Centre.

The GFA statement was, however, silent on the specific steps and disciplinary procedures it intends to take against individuals named in the documentary, including Nyantakyi, who is seen on video negotiating a 25 percent slash of a sponsorship deal meant for the federation.

Nyantakyi was pictured taking $65,000 (£48,000) from an undercover reporter, who pretended to be a businessman keen to invest in Ghanaian football.
