Group initiate moves to force out injuncted GFA Executive Committee

A document has been generated by an unknown group to get club owners to pass a vote of no confidence in the Ghana FA’s Executive Committee.

National league clubs – clubs that compete in the Premier and Division One Leagues – are being encouraged to sign onto this document to force out the Executive Committee that is currently injuncted by an Accra High Court.

Sections of club administrators are said to be behind the document which is being circulated for club owners or accredited representatives to sign.

The document being circulated for clubs to sign Initiators are looking to register at least half of the 64 known clubs that compete in national leagues.

The GFA’s Executive Committee has been blamed by sections of the football fraternity for failing to ‘show leadership’ in the midst of the Anas expose – a documentary authored by Anas Aremeyaw Anas that reveals acts of alleged corruption in Ghana football.

In that expose, a significant number of referees and high ranking members of the Ghana FA were filmed in alleged acts of corruption.

CAF has since handed several degrees of bans to the referees while some of the high ranking officials caught in the sting operation including Kwasi Nyantakyi have since resigned from their positions.
