The Number 12 video which reveals the rot and corruption surrounding the football Governing body highlighted how referees, the association that appoints the referees, National Sports Authority, up to the higher office of the presidency involved themselves in shady deals to manipulate the outcome of matches and events of the game loved so much by Ghanaians.

“Any Government will do the same thing looking at the situation we find ourselves”.

He also added that looking at the situation our football finds itself in and the stir and tension the Number 12 expose has raised, it is was a necessary decision that needed to be taken no matter the cost. He is of the view that the dissolution of the GFA will allow us to build from the ground and allow for restructuring.
