Government freezes GFA account - Reports

According to reports, the government of Ghana has placed an embargo on the accounts of the Ghana Football Association.

This emerged after cheques issued to match officials for the ongoing Zylofon cash Premier league and Division One League failed to clear due to an embargo placed on their account by the state.

Referees Association of Ghana (RAG) is set to meet the match officials to meet and deliberate on the matter.

Reports further indicate that the cheques were written for matches that were officiated from matchday one to matchday eight.

The Ghana Football Association has been restrained from organizing football activities after the court granted government an injunction, following the "Number 12" video that has uncovered corruption in Ghana football with officials of the GFA and referees at the heart of the scandal.

It has been reported that government is taking steps to replace the Ghana Football Association (GFA) with Ghana Football Federation (GFF).

Meanwhile, Kwesi Nyantakyi who resigned last week Friday as the President of the GFA has also relinquished his positions at FIFA, CAF and WAFU on Monday for misconducting himself in the Anas exposé

The astute banker and lawyer is currently serving 90 days ban by FIFA for being at the centre of the corruption scandal that has rocked the GFA.
