Amidu Abdulai Camara, President of Kumasi based Division One side, Asokwa Deportivo has revealed that, former president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi once rewarded him with GHC5,000.00 for refusing to fix one of the club’s league matches.

      According to Mr. Camara, he received an amount of GHC 5,000.00 from Nyantakyi as an incentive when he reported that a betting company had contacted him (Camara) to fix a match.

      In an interview with the GNA Sports, the football administrator explained that the incident happened in the 2016/17 season, when his club was scheduled to play a match in the Western region.

     He said, he was promised a heavy amount by the betting company who had contacted him through the phone to fix the match.

     “In one of my games last season, a betting company came to me to fix the game for a huge sum of money. I thought about the offer carefully and made a strong decision to refuse it. So on the day I motivated my boys and we played very well and even won the match,” Camara told the GNA Sports.

     “After that, I informed the GFA president (Nyantakyi) and he gave me GHC 5,000.00 for refusing to fix the match. He gave me the money as a reward, congratulated me  and encouraged me to continue the good work.”

      “For me, I didn’t take the money because it was not right and I told myself that such money cannot be invested in my team. Since then I have never been contacted again and the number that called me from that time to today is unreachable.”

     Mr. Camara used the opportunity to advice his fellow club administrators and other officials of the game to desist from any act of corruption so that football is sanitised and brought back to its best.

     “We all have a role to play in the fight against corruption. Football should be a free and fair game. It works with rules and regulations and we should respect that. No one should control the outcome of the game. Let’s all join forces to stop bribery in our game now.”

      The GFA has been dissolved by the government of Ghana after an expose by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas. The expose dubbed ‘Number 12’ saw many football officials and administrators caught on tape taking money from individuals who sought to influence the football matches.

we do not care if he gave money to you or not this is not the time to come out to say all these stories to us. what we needed has be done by the government and hoping to get new people to help in the development of our football in the country. people who will come for their own benefit. Long live our country mother Ghana.
