E. C. to continue investigation

The Ethics Committee of the Ghana Football Association will continue its investigations into the alleged bribery and match-fixing case between Wa African United and Techiman City FC tomorrow at the GFA Secretariat in Accra.

The Committee began investigations into an alleged bribery case between the two clubs after their 22nd week match in the GN Bank Division One League at the Damongo Park.

The investigation process was initiated after Wa African United petitioned the GFA with allegations of bribery against the CEO of Techiman City FC.

Both parties in the case appeared before the Ethics Committee at its last two meetings at the Ashanti Regional headquarters in Kumasi with their respective witnesses.

Meanwhile, GFA president,Kwesi Nyantakyi has defended the Ethics Committee by emphasizing that the committee is really working to control the conduct of stakeholders in the game.

The Ethics Committee is one of the standing committees of the GFA which has come under severe public scrutiny.

However, Nyantakyi who was once invited by the body for questioning on his exchanges with Kwame Baah Nuako in 2013 has stated that the Ethics Committee is a hard working body because it ensures all culprits are brought to book to bring sanity into the game of football, adding that club administrators refrain abusive languages.

“The Ethics Committee is really working, because anybody who says something brings the name of the game into disrepute is invited for questioning.

“I was once invited to answer some questions, so they are functioning effectively and I think some club officials should refrain from acts that bring the name of the game into disrepute,” the GFA President told Angel FM.
