Anas in June 2018, premiered a video which exposed corruption at various levels of Ghana football.
The video among other things exposed over 80 referees and match officials receiving monies to fix matches.
Then GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi lost his standing and all positions in local and international football after he was captured allegedly detailing how he was going to personally benefit from a supposed $15 million sponsorship money for Ghana’s league.
Nyantakyi, also told the supposed investor, how he [the investor] could be given several government contracts if he pays bribes to some key government officials such as Ghana’s President and the Vice President.
He resigned from his positions at the GFA, WAFU, CAF and FIFA, where he served as a member of the world football governing body’s Executive Council.
Nyantakyi was subsequently banned from all football activities for life.
