Court Bans GFA From Operating For 10 Days

botchway June 13, 2018

The High Court has placed an interim injunction on the activities of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

The order of the court, therefore, bars the GFA and its officials from carrying out all official duties at least for ten days.

This includes the organization of football matches, the selling of the association’s assets, the appointment and election of officials and other official duties.

In her argument before the court, the Attorney General, Gloria Akuffo, contended that GFA was being used for illegal purposes.

The injunction, according to the AG, is, therefore, necessary to protect the public.

This is after the Government filed a petition at the High Court for the dissolution of the GFA.

The government announced last week it was already taking steps to dissolve the association.

The shake-up in Ghana football was sparked by investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ latest exposé on corruption in football.

High-ranking members of the GFA, including its then-President Kwesi Nyantakyi, have been implicated in acts of corruption.
