GFA reacts to false social media reports

The Ghana Football Association has reacted angrily to a false social media report attributing unfavourable comments about CAF to its president, Kwesi Nyantakyi.

The GFA in a statement issued on Wednesday disowned and distanced themselves from the claim.

They also described the originator of the post as an unprofessional journalist.

Below is the full statement;

The attention of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has been drawn to a report on social media attributing a comment about CAF to the federation’s President, Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi.

The GFA and its President hereby disown the social media report and completely distance ourselves from the claim.

Furthermore, we totally frown on the unprofessional method of news gathering adopted by the journalist on this occasion.

Mr Nyantakyi was engaged in an informal chat with some friends when the journalist chanced on the conversation and completely took it out of context when posting on social media.

We wish to totally disassociate ourselves from the report and re-affirm our support for the processes within CAF to get more sponsors for our competitions.
