GFA Wants More Time To Respond To Gov’t Injunction

The Accra High Court has adjourned hearing for an injunction application filed by the Attorney General against the Ghana Football Association.

The Attorney General filed an ex-parte application for a ten-day injunction on all football activities in the country which also bars the GFA and it officials from carrying out any official duties within the stipulated time, last month.

After the expiration of the 10 days, the A-G filed another application on notice to extend the injunction.

According to the lawyer for the GFA Abu Juan their clients were served with the suit late and were therefore unable to respond.

They further prayed the court to adjourn of the case to Thursday to give them more time to respond.

The Attorney General represented by her deputy Godfred Dame did not oppose the request by the GFA.

The government, as part of its moves to restructure the GFA as a result of revelations of corruption through Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ investigative piece, began some processes including a petition for the dissolution of the GFA.

But the GFA has challenged the Attorney General’s petition at the High Court seeking for the dissolution.
