Speaking to the media, the attorney general described the GFA as an "obscene emblem of scandal, corruption and illegal enterprise".

After watching the Number 12 by investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, the attorney general revealed that "deceit, fraud among others are seen. Its clear from that documentary that the GFA cannot continue to exist."

According to her, the government has attached the video to their documents that show the former GFA President, officials among others engaged in various corrupt activities.

Gloria Akufo's move at the Supreme Court follows an earlier statement by the government to dissolve the GFA following revelations of corruption seen in the Number 12 video by Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

Embattled former president of the defunct Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, has resigned from his position. This was after cases of corruption in the GFA were revealed in Number 12 by Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

The president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Ahmad Ahmad, has also revealed that Nyantakyi has also resigned from CAF and the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA). This was after the international bodies banned the embattled football official.

Investigations are currently underway into the cases of corruption as seen in the video by Anas. To this end, all workers of the GFA have been asked to vacate the premises as the police have described the headquarters of the GFA as a 'crime scene'.

There are questions over what the next line of action by Nyantakyi will be after this explosive video by Anas. For now, the embattled boss of the GFA has no immediate plans to take especially when all his power and influence in the realm of football has been killed with bans, resignations, and investigations.

It is clear that should he be found guilty by the court of law, Nyantakyi will be spending most, if not all of his in jail. The special prosecutor's office is yet to open a case against Nyantakyi and should the office do so, we might be looking at a 20 to 25 jail sentence.
