Former President John Agyekum Kufuor has described as “evil” the level of corruption and greed perpetrated in the administration of football in Ghana.
After watching excerpts of the documentary, Mr Kufuor who appears to be close to tears expressed disgust at the corrupt acts of some officials cited in the latest exposé by ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
In a video posted on Anas’ Facebook and Twitter page, Mr. Kufuor asked for the relevant punishment to be meted out to all the culprits, with the backing of the law.
“I want the nation to be shocked of this practice; of this evil. I believe Ghana is a country of laws and investigations should be put to work, and of course the outcomes be applied strictly to law.’’
Meanwhile, some high profiled personalities including Former President Mahama who watched exclusive excerpts of the video expressed similar sentiments.
“For many years we have been wondering why the quality of our game keeps going down…Ghana was one of the greatest teams on the continent and internationally.
“This doesn’t look good, it’s sad,” Mr. Mahama said.
