The government of Ghana says it has begun action to dissolve the Ghana Football Association after an undercover investigation exposed alleged corruption amongst referees and implicated the federation's president, Kwesi Nyantakyi.
The scandal has indicted 66 Ghanaian referees as well as 14 FA officials in taking bribes, with the FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi finding himself in the midst of the allegations.
A press release from FIFA, yesterday, announced Nyantakyi's ban from all football-related activities at both national and global levels, leaving him with no option than to resign.

"The Police Administration is assuring the public of due processes and encouraging persons with verifiable information to volunteer it to Police through the Financial Forensic Unit of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) headquarters at Accra".
The statement added that the government will announce provisional measures to govern football until a new body is formed, and that it would inform FIFA and the Confederation of African Football of its decision.
