A three member delegation is to travel to Switzerland to meet the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) officials over the recent attempt by the government to dissolve the Ghana Football Association (GFA), after the controversial Anas Expose, which highlighted on corrupt practices within the local football controlling body.

"Let me also confirm that there was a demand on me through a third party to part with $150k for Anas to drop the videos on me. I didn’t have the said amount of money to meet his demand," Nyantakyi wrote in the statement.

Former President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi has responded to the Anas exposé and stated he was asked to pay $150,000 to cancel screening of the documentary.
In a press statement, vowing to fight corruption allegations against him following the investigative documentary by Anas Aremeyaw Anas, Mr Nyantakyi explained what he said was his side of the story in the matter that resulted in his suspension from the world football governing body, FIFA.

The government on Tuesday filed a petition at the High Court for the dissolution of the GFA. Government is praying the court to make the Registrar General's Department, the legal liquidator of the process to bring the GFA's existence to an end.
