Ghana has chose to dissolve its national football association a day after officials, including the body's president, were shown in a documentary taking kickbacks.

Provisional measures will be put in place to run the sport in Ghana until a new body is formed.

The Ghanaian government has chose to dissolve the country's football association after claims, in an undercover documentary, of bribe-taking by referees and kickbacks to top officials.

The information minister said the documentary "exposes gross malfunctioning of the Ghana Football Association characterised by widespread fraud, corruption and bribery".

Youth and Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah told KweséESPN that the dissolution means all football activity is on hold in the country. The Ghana Football Association issued a statement last month backing their president and saying he was innocent until proven guilty. They will also drop out of the U20 World Cup.

Clifford", the lawsuit says, according to NBC News . "Someone who sells his or her body for money has no good name", he concluded. Adult film actress Stormy Daniels speaks outside federal court in NY on April 16, 2018.

Asiamah said the decision had been a hard one to take, and is aware that it is likely to trigger some sort of action from world football's governing body FIFA, who strictly forbid the interference of government in the national federations.

FIFA banned Nigeria in 2014 after its High Court disbanned the Football Association after a poor showing at the World Cup in Brazil.

GFA's president Kwesi Nyantakyi was seen taking $65,000 in the documentary released on Wednesday.

One of the harshest offenses shown was carried out by Kwesi Nyantakyi, the president of GFA and a Federation Internationale de Football Association council member, who is seen taking $65,000 from Anas' men.

On May 24, this year, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo reported Mr Nyantakyi to the police for investigation after he (the President) had watched portions of the latest investigative work by the ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, dubbed: "Number 12".
