Court Orders An Injunction On The GFA

An Accra High Court has granted an application by the Attorney General to enable government to put an injunction on all Ghana Football Association activities for 10 days.

The Attorney General headed to the Accra Commercial Affairs Court on Tuesday, June 12, 2018 to dissolve the Ghana Football Association (GFA) following an explosive revelation against the football powerhouse.

The Attorney General triggered the processes to officially liquidate the Ghana FA at the Registrar General’s Department and to place an injunction on the executives to stop functioning as officials of the Association.

The High Court in granting the application by Attorney general placed an interim injunction on all Ghana Football Association’s (GFA) activities for the next ten days.

Gloria Akuffo Argued that the GFA was being used for illegal activities and therefore was not benefiting Ghanaians.

The order of the court, therefore, bars the GFA and its officials from carrying out all official duties.

This includes the organization of football matches, the selling of the association’s assets, the appointment and election of officials and other official duties.

Highlights of what happened in Court today:

*The AG seek an order to prevent current FA Executives from performing functions conferred on them.

*The AG, who carried a copy of the Dzamefe Report and citing particular sections, told the court that the GFA has become an ‘‘obscene emblem of scandal, Corruption and illegal enterprise”

*She also described the FA as instrument of self-aggrandizement, and an instrument used by some people to enrich themselves.

The Judge, therefore triggered the process, therefore all GFA activities will be put on hold for ten days.
