Court bans GFA officials for 10 days

An Accra High Court has granted an application by the Attorney General to enable government dissolve the scandal hit Ghana Football Association.



The Attorney General headed to court on Tuesday, June 12, 2018 to dissolve the Ghana Football Association (GFA) following an explosive revelation against the football powerhouse.

The former president of the FA Kwesi Nyantakyi is currently on a police enquiry bail after being captured on tape receiving $65,000 gift to agree a sponsorship deal with supposed investors in an undercover investigation by celebrated journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

He resigned on Friday, June 8, after FIFA handed him a 90-day provisional ban from all footballing activities.

Over 80 referees and football officials were involved in the bribery scandal which has rocked the GFA.

The Attorney General triggered the processes to officially liquidate the Ghana FA at the Registrar General’s Department and to place an injunction on the executives to stop functioning as officials of the Association.

The High Court in granting the application by the Attorney General placed an interim injunction on all Ghana Football Association’s (GFA) activities.

The injunction order according to the presiding judge, Justice Samuel Asiedu, is to last for 10 days after which the AG must come to court to renew.

Gloria Akuffo argued that the GFA was being used for illegal activities and therefore was not benefiting Ghanaians.

The order of the court, therefore, bars the GFA and its officials from carrying out all official duties and entering the GFA premises.

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