The said exposé captured over 77 Ghana football officials and referees accepting ‘cash gifts’ and compromising their duties in return.
In an interview with SilverSports host Fancy Di Maria last Saturday,the Kumasi-based retired referee said, '' the expose had a major impact on the Association and myself as a newly-elected Chairman at the time....It is one of my deepest moments and challenge which I will never forget''
''But I was guided by the highest form of ethics and professionalism in the performance of my duties to clear and restore the bad image the expose brought onto RAG''
''I had a cordial relationship with all the match officials sighted in the expose but I stood on my grounds and allowed the law to do its work , evoking the functions of article 34A and 34B of our constitution to deal with the match officials caught in the investigative piece''
Premiered back in June, the documentary, titled “Number 12” has since had a major impact across the African continent.
Anas’ ‘Number 12’ exposé brought serious consequences to the persons captured perpetrating untoward acts, especially Kwesi Nyantakyi.
The worst culprits of corruption from the Anas exposé, aside Kwesi Nyantakyi, were the referees and assistant referees.
Again, it was Anas’ exposé which led to FIFA setting up a Normalization Committee to oversee the temporary running of football in Ghana.
