There have been mixed reaction about the appointment of Ghanaian Football legend, Abedi Ayew Pele to be part of a five-member Committee to preside over Ghana football.
While some think it is a laudable move by the government, others feel he is not fit to assume such a position as his club, Nania FC, was involved in a match-fixing scandal in the year 2007.
Abedi Pele's club FC Nania won 31-0 over Okwawu United while rivals Great Mariners were 28-0 winners over Mighty Jets in results deemed by the Ghana Football Association to have been fixed.
This led to the club being demoted to the third tier of Ghana Football.
Listen to Cudjoe Fianoo Saying he is not sure if Anas captured him on his video and he makes it unto a committee like this— Call Me Osei (@SirAmankwaah) June 13, 2018
Cudjoe Fianoo doesn’t deserve to be on this committee.
But aaa well, Abedi Pele whose team scored 31:0 within 45min in a Division 1 league match is on it. pic.twitter.com/dSGAiNO4mQ

Man Abedi Pele??— E N T. 🤟 (@mawuli_a_) June 13, 2018
That guy is worse than Kwesi Nyantekyi....
Abedi’s team; Nania FC, was banned because they influenced a match by winning 23:0
23 oo 😂😂😂
Why are this people being rude to Abedi Pele ????— Two Terty (@wobekume) June 13, 2018
He has a lot of influence outside Ghana
And that one alone helps his children secure teams in the premier league even if the team relegates
Pele is a good choice
Abedi Pele will be the "international relations" guy on the committee. His name and face will open doors and sooth FIFA tempers in the months to come pic.twitter.com/Q6iRE77I3i— Godfred Akoto Boafo (@eastsportsman) June 13, 2018
Abedi Pele who engineered the fixed game that ended 1000-2 or so is the one we appointed to lead this transition or whatever? Laughable— Coochie Monster (@Mister_Manaf) June 13, 2018
