Ban threat: Govt to meet FIFA on Aug 16

The Government of Ghana is scheduled to have a meeting with world football governing body, FIFA, on Thursday, 16 August 2018 in Zurich, to engage in further discussions of football reforms and how Ghana can avoid a ban.

This comes in the wake of FIFA’s threat to ban the country if a petition to liquidate the Ghana Football Association (GFA) is not withdrawn by government from the law court.

FIFA in a letter to Ghana on Tuesday, 14 August 2018 said Ghana government’s petition to liquidate the GFA was an interference in football which contravenes FIFA’s rules and regulations and gave the country an August 27 deadline to withdraw the petition or face a ban.

Addressing the press on Wednesday 15 August 2018, Minister of Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, said: “The focus of that discussion is to explore means by which the two parties can finalise arrangements on a mutually accepted route for this final phase of resolving the observed infractions in football administration in Ghana”.

The decision to petition the court to liquidate the GFA came on the back of an investigative documentary by ace journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas which uncovered massive rot in Ghana football.
