Court appoints Registrar of Companies to manage GFA assets

The High Court has appointed the Registrar of Companies as the official liquidator of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

The court decided this after it granted an injunction application by Attorney General to restrain the GFA and all it assigns from carrying out any official work.

The decision of the court means the registrar of companies, Jemima Oware, will manage all the assets of GFA until the hearing of the substantive petition for liquidation.

In his ruling, the judge, Justice Samuel Kwame Asiedu said he had no contentions with the issues raised by the AG.

This AG filed a new application for an injunction and a taking over of the assets of the GFA after the expiration of the 10-day injunction granted by the same court.

The Attorney General, Gloria Akuffo, has argued that the GFA is being used for illegal purposes.

The injunction, according to the AG, is, therefore, necessary to protect the public.

The government began moves to dissolve the GFA after revelations of corruption by Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ investigative piece.

Kwesi Nyantakyi, who has since resigned as President of the GFA, was caught on tape plotting to fleece the FA of sponsorship money while promising supposed investors access to President Akufo-Addo for a fee.

Many other Ghanaian FA officials and referees were also caught in alleged match-fixing deals.

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