Ghana was thrown into a state of anxiety as Investigative Journalist Anas Aremeyaw premiered his much anticipated investigative piece involving the Ghana football on June 6th 2018.
The day saw hundreds of Ghanaians trooping in to the International Conference Center to witness the alleged corruption and corrupt practices involving gurus of Ghana football.
The International Conference Center could not contain the numerous people who thronged the place to witness the expose.
The gates to the premises were closed before 3pm, the time scheduled for the first premiere of the exposé.
A huge crowd had to assemble at the main premises, hoping to catch a glimpse of the show.
Three people in the usual Anas mask with one of them supposedly being Anas, were present around 3:30 to grace the occasion amidst shouts and cheers from the crowd present.
Some people, according to our information, came there as early as 6am to wait for an opportunity to get in, indicating people’s interest in the expose.
When Newslinegh.com contacted some of the people, they indicated that, there has been much talk about corruption in the football arena, but due to the fact that there was no empirical evidence, people are left to go free.
They also added that, the expose brings to an end the era of excuses.
A man who vouched to stay until the end of the premiering indicated that, football administrators have taken Ghanaians for a ride, and was hopeful that action would be taken against anyone who is implicated in the video.
According to him, football authorities hide behind FIFA rules and autonomy to loot and rob the country.
Ghana football has suffered unexplained retrogression in recent times, fueling heightened perception of corruption in the ranks of football administrators.
Ghana football has seen scandal upon scandals which brought the country an International embarrassment, and has cost the nation the hard earned resources, with the Brazil world cup incident being the recent.
The President of the Republic, H. E. Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo Addo lodged a formal complaint to the CID over Nyantakyi allegedly using his name and that of the Vice President, H. E. Dr. Mahmoud Bawumia to extort money from supposed investors, per the Anas expose.
Ghanaians have already hailed the exploits of Anas and have called for stringent actions against individuals found culpable in the exposé.
