- An Accra High Court has placed a 10-day injunction on the GFA
- This follows an ex-parte motion filed by the Attorney General on behalf of government
- Within this period, no member of the GFA can hold themselves as such
An Accra High Court has restrained the Ghana Football Association (GFA) from conducting any football-related activities in the next 10 days.
This follows an ex-parte motion filed by the Attorney General, Gloria Akuffo, on behalf of the government.
The ruling means members of the GFA's Executive Committee cannot hold up themselves as such.
The injunction could be described as government's biggest step yet in its quest to dissolve the GFA following the rot that was uncovered by Anas Aremeyaw Anas in his Number 12 exposé.
Anas exposé a horrible culture of bribery at the GFA which had its former president, Kwesi Nyantakyi and other leading members involved.
But the government, appalled by the the wanton corruption, announced its intention to dissolve the GFA.
Already government has triggered both Act 179 (The Company's Act) as well as Act 180 (The Official Liquidation's Act) to get the FA dissolved which's suit is already before the court.
However, prior to the determination of the substantive case an injunction has been placed on the GFA, banning it’s officials from carrying out any action in an official capacity.
Reports suggest that government intends to replace the GFA with the Ghana Football Federation (GFF).
