One of the trending news on Monday has been about a forensic audit conducted by FIFA on the Ghana Football Association (GFA), which found no acts corruption or financial impropriety on Kwesi Nyantakyi during his tenure.

Reports suggest that an audit conducted on the orders of FIFA six months ago also cleared members of the Executive Committee of the GFA of any acts of malfeasance.

The auditing officials, who spent about one month in Ghana investigating the financial affairs of the federation, discovered that neither corruption nor embezzlement took place at the GFA.

The audit report concluded that the Ghana FA has only ‘perception issues’ to deal with since media reports of corruption within the federation are ‘wide off the mark’, the report said.

However, the FIFA auditors recommended that the slim accounts office staff must be boosted while modern accountancy software used by some federations like the South African FA must be acquired by the Ghana FA to ease the workload.


Ghanaian sports journalism, Gary Al-Smith seems to be contesting the veracity of the report, which was first published by Ghanasoccernet.com, believed to be pro-Nyantakyi.

Meanwhile, another report from GHwired.com says amember of the Ghana FA Normalization Committee, Naa Odofoley Nortey has rubbished claims the Committee has received the forensic audit report conducted by the world football governing body into the Kwesi Nyantakyi’s led administration.
