The Ghana Physiotherapists Association says it has no knowledge of one David Nhyiraba Tetteh, who had presented himself as a physiotherapist and was seen receiving a bribe in investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ exposé on Ghana football.
The bribe was supposedly to get Nhyiraba Tetteh to clear an injured player to start in an Under-17 World Cup game in India.
[contextly_sidebar id=”H5nCy06ZPxVU0itLunoIHGNB3tNeoYkE”]The General Secretary of the Physiotherapists Association, Paul Amankonah insists that the man in question is not recognised as a Physiotherapist in Ghana but was rather posing as a specialist.
He explained to Citi News that the Association publishes the names of members in good standing annually.
According to him, Nyhiraba Tetteh has never been captured in one of such lists.
But the perception that he was tagged as a physiotherapist is of concern to the association.
“We realise that this publication is going to affect the confidence the public has in their physiotherapists,” Paul Amankonah stated.
“Under the laws of Ghana, before one can use the title of physiotherapists, they should have gone through some level of education and then certified by the allied health professionals council. The man’s name is not on that list.”
“This man is also not a member of the Ghana physiotherapist association. That is why we can confidently say that he is not one of us,” Paul Amankonah said.
The Association, in an earlier statement, said it “would be glad if Anas Aremeyaw Anas and/or Tiger PI group could do further checks and review this publication accordingly.”
Many Ghanaian FA officials and referees were caught in match-fixing deals on camera by Anas.
Top football administrators were also seen taking money to give footballers call-ups to the national team and more playing time.
Anas’ work culminated in the initiation of moves by the government to dissolve the Ghana Football Association.
The High Court on June 12 placed an interim injunction on the activities of the Ghana Football Association.
The order of the court, therefore, bars the GFA and its officials from carrying out all official duties at least for ten days.
