The Ghana Football Association Thursday pledged to tackle corruption after an explosive undercover investigation alleged referees took bribes and the head of the governing body received kickbacks.It also charges that GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi – a senior member of world governing body FIFA and the Confederation of African Football – requested $11 million from undercover reporters posing as investors to secure government contracts.The governing body said it had previously acted swiftly against claims of match fixing.In 2014, Britain's Channel 4 television and The Daily Telegraph newspaper claimed Nyantakyi agreed a $170,000 deal for Ghana's national side to play in a friendly organized by match fixers.
