Leanier Addy remains at post with SSNIT

Leanier Addy remains an employee of the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) contrary to reports that she has been sacked.

The suspended Ghana FA Executive Committee member remains at post with the national pension scheme.

Reports were rife that Leanier Addy had been sacked by SSNIT over her appearance in the sting documentary of Anas Aremayaw Anas which sought to expose corruption in Ghana football.

The football administrator was captured receiving money alleged to be a bribe to influence her work as a Match Commissioner in an MTN FA Cup match between Hearts of Oak and Kotoku Royals played last year.

She was part of four Executive Committee members who currently stand suspended pending full investigations.

Checks made by however confirmed that Leanier Addy was still at post with SSNIT contrary to reports she had been sacked.

She continues to discharge her duties as required at SSNIT while assisting the Ghana Police Service in the investigations with the aim of clearing her name.

Until the Anas exposé, Leanier Addy was the only woman on the powerful GFA Executive Committee and a member of the Local Organizing Committee for the hosting of the Africa Women’s Nations Cup to be hosted by Ghana later this year.
