Two Ghanaian officials implicated in the alleged match fixing involving the Ghana Football Association, have expressed surprise about the reports.
The UK-based Daily Telegraph’s Channel 4’s Dispatches programme claimed after six-month investigations, it uncovered a Ghanaian club official and a Fifa agent had agreed to arrange the rigging of international matches involving the national team.
Christopher Forsythe, a registered Fifa agent, along with Obed Nketiah, a senior figure in the Ghanaian FA, in a secretly recorded video allegedly boasted that they could employ corrupt officials who would rig matches played by Ghana.
But solicitor for Forsythe and Nketiah, Alfred Tuah-Yeboah described the Daily Telegraph publications as half-baked.
‘My clients have learnt with surprise publications made in the Daily Telegraph of London, U.K and other Media Networks linking them to corrupt activities in the administration of football,’ a press release from the solicitor noted.
Lawyer Tuah-Yeboah maintained that, ‘The said publications are half baked and do not represent the full details of how my clients were lured into those discussions.’
He promised his clients would come out at the appropriate time with the truth.
‘In the fullness of time: my clients would lay bare the true facts on the ground for the whole world to know the truth.’
