The Attorney General Gloria Akufo has filed a suit in court to restrain the Ghana Football Association from operating or engaging in any football related activity.

She’s also petitioned the Registrar General’s Department to liquidate the GFA.

The Attorney General will move the motion for injunction against the GFA today, Tuesday June 12, 2018.

The action forms part of steps by government to dissolve the GFA following revelation of widespread bribery and corruption in Ghana football by match officials and referees in the latest investigative piece by renowned investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

The GFA President, Kwasi Nyantakyi were caught on camera pocketing $65,000 from a supposed investor to broker a sponsorship deal, with the referees taking various amounts of monies to compromise their fairness in football matches.

Government last Friday announced that it is taking steps to dissolve the Ghana Football Association (GFA) following the latest exposé.

In a statement signed by Information Minister, Mustapha Hamid, government said it is “shocked and outraged” by the contents of the exposé which was premiered at the AICC on Wednesday.

“Government will see to it that the necessary reforms are urgently undertaken to sanitise football administration in the country. 

“Government will communicate these decisions to the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA), and engage with been on these developments to chart a way forward for Ghana football.”
