The Accra High court has intensified the pressure on the Executive Committee of Ghana Football Association after granting the second injunction application by the Attorney General. This is to restrain the GFA Executive Committee from holding meetings and working as members of the Football Association.
Therefore the Court sitting presided by Justice Samuel Kwame Asiedu directed the Registrar of Companies, Jemima Oware to act as the official liquidator of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
The AG after initially securing a 10-day injunction against the GFA filed a fresh application which was granted to also take over of the assets of the FA.
At the last court sitting, the GFA was granted leave by the Commercial High Court to file an affidavit to oppose a motion filed by the Attorney General, Gloria Akuffo, seeking an interlocutory injunction to stop Executives of the GFA from carrying out their duties until the court determines the State’s case asking GFA to be liquidated.
In his ruling, Justice Aseidu indicated that the claim by lawyers of the GFA that the application by the Attorney General is frivolous is untenable. The application he said has substance and right in law. He subsequently went on to grant the application and also appointed the Registrar General as the official liquidator to oversee the processes leading to the dissolution of the GFA until the hearing of the substantive petition for liquidation.
