The Accra High Court has put an injunction on the activities of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and has also appointed the Registrar of Companies to protect the assets of the association.
The ruling by the court, presided over Mr Justice Samuel Asiedu, followed an application filed by the Attorney-General (A-G), which sought to restrain the activities of the association.
The government through the A-G wanted the court to put an injunction on the GFA pending the determination of a petition to dissolve the GFA.
It also prayed the court to appoint a liquidator who will protect the assets of the GFA until the determination of the petition to dissolve the GFA.
In his ruling, Mr Asiedu said there was substance in the issues raised by the A-G and accordingly granted the A-G application.
Per the court order, the registrar of companies, Mrs Jemima Oware, will take over the assets of the GFA until the petition by the A-G for the association to be dissolved is determined.
The moves by the Government to liquidate the GFA followed an expose by undercover journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, in which some officials of the GFA were alleged to have collected bribes.Former President of the GFA, Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi, resigned after he was implicated in the expose.
