- Nana Addo has dissolved the Ghana Football Association (GFA)
- This action has been confirmed by the sports minister who says all activities including leagues have been suspended
- There are some questions to be asked over this development including the fate of contracts signed
The President of the republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has dissolved the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
Just 24 hours after the premiering of the explosive video by the investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, the president ordered for all activities within the association to be suspended with immediate effect.
In fact, the video by Anas saw Kwesi Nyantaki grabbing wads of dollars which totals $65,000 from investors who wish to win road contracts from the president and his vice.
This is the first time in six to eight years since the government has dissolved the football association.
The sports minister, Isaac Asiama, confirmed this developing story explaining what the dissolution means to Joy FM.
"When we say the FA is dissolved it means all functions, all activities are all dissolved," he said and mentioned the suspension of the Premier League.
But there are tough questions about the effect this move by the president has taken that are still unanswered.
1. What happens to all the contracts entered into by the GFA especially the recent one being the $10m Premier League sponsorship deal with Zylofon Cash? If this is not treated carefully it could result in a judgment debt.
2. What will be the state of all the local leagues currently underway, will they be called off in spite of the massive investments made into them?
3. By dissolving the GFA, could that mean all secret documents, emails and further evidence that could be used by the police for investigation will be destroyed? If this is the case, then it will be very hard for Kwesi Nyantakyi to be investigated and jailed.
4. With this development, is there a potential that all national teams cannot take part in any Fifa and CAF sanctioned competitions?
5. What then is the state of all the officials - both guilty and innocent - under the Ghana Football Association? Because a dissolution clearly means all workers and officials under the FA are currently jobless.
6. What is the next plan for the GFA, are we going to see a new board to manage football in Ghana or football is now a thing of the past?
Meanwhile, the embattled president of the dissolved GFA, Kwesi Nyantakyi is bound to be thrown in prison based on such drastic action by the president.
From the look of things, the presidency is terrible mad about the stench of corruption at the football association and thinks the best way to uproot this rot is by collapsing the entire association.
