Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for Aduana Stars and executive member for the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Albert Commey, has revealed on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm that, he was tempted by the Tiger Eye PI Team during their investigation which captured some officials of the FA allegedly taking bribes to compromise their office.
He made the disclosure in an interview with host; Kwame Tutu on the impact the Anas expose has brought the GFA and the possible planned dissolution.
‘’I am telling you my story today. They tempted me three times. When I listened to the story line, I realized it was a temptation. I quite remember a gentleman came from Kumasi and told me he had a player and wanted him to be assisted. When the boy arrived, I realized he could not play at the level they wanted him. So I handed him over to the junior coaches. Then the gentleman brought out a bundle of money from the bag so I told him point blank that, I don’t accept bribes. There were some people around at the time and they told the gentleman that, I don’t accept bribes. After I refused the bribe, the guy did not come to the training as he was directed.
He continued: ‘’the second time, I received a call from someone tempting me to help them fix a match so we can bet and win big. I warned the person not to call my line again. I told the person I was not interested. This is what happened to me and I am sure they may have done same to other FA officials.’’
''We all have our strength and weaknesses. My strength is to reject bribes when I am offered but they are others who are unable to resist that temptation and so will fall for it.''
Albert Commey who was disturbed said he is at the crossroad and will soon decide whether to continue with football or abandon football and pursue other activities.
‘’I am not happy because there were a lot of machinations. I am told there were some people behind this. I am not a happy man,’’ he lamented.
