An Accra High Court has placed an injunction on all activities of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) paving the way for government to proceed with processes to dissolve the football management body.
This follows the publication of investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas’s Number 12 undercover documentary which exposed rot at the GFA.
Attorney General Gloria Akuffo proceeded to court on Tuesday, 12 June after government hinted at plans to dissolve the GFA.
She told the court that the GFA was being used for illegal purposes.
The injunction prevents all officials of the GFA from conducting any activity within 10 days.
Currently, resigned President of the GFA, Kwesi Nyantakyi, is being investigated by the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service for defrauding by false pretences and also for soliciting bribes in the name of President Nana Akufo-Addo and Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
Mr Nyantakyi was caught on camera receiving hefty wads of dollars as bribe. Also, 77 referees were caught in compromising positions.
Following the showing of the documentary, Mr Nyantakyi resigned from all football positions he holds with GFA, CAF, WAFU and FIFA. He was handed a 90-day provisional ban by FIFA before resigning.
