Four workers of the NSA caught on camera receiving monies suspected to be bribes are on the verge of losing their jobs.
The latest investigative piece of Anas Aremeyaw Anas dubbed 'Number 12' caught several sports administrators and officials on camera for receiving monies suspected to bribes.
It would be recalled that four staff members of the NSA namely: Robert Sarfo Mensah (Director General), Frederica Mensah-Davis (Public Relations Officer), Joshua Mensah (Ashanti Regional Director) and Patrick Agorzor, Protocol Officer, were also captured in Anas’s investigative piece accepting monetary gifts.
The National Sports Authority (NSA) has disclosed that staff who were implicated in the Anas Aremeyaw Anas exposé have been interdicted.
“The management of the National Sports Authority’s attention has been drawn to a publication in the Daily Graphic dated June 26, 2018, on the above subject matter. The story seeks to suggest that NSA staff who were implicated in the Anas video were still at post and that they (GFA staff) don’t understand why they have been prevented from working.
“It is worth noting that management of the NSA quickly activated its internal administrative procedure by setting up a committee to give the affected staff the opportunity to respond to the actions captured in the exposé, while waiting for the outcome of the police investigations. Subsequently, these implicated persons, including the Director-General, have been interdicted in line with our laid down administrative procedure and are not at post,” the statement added.
The NSA, however, stressed that the NSA would not condone any acts of misconduct on the part of any staff of the authority or any association or federation registered under the outfit, including the GFA, and, therefore, welcome the government’s decision to refer the matter to the Ghana Police Service for further investigation.
