GFA Dissolution: Govt makes U-turn

The Government of Ghana has rescinded its decision to liquidate the Ghana Football Association following a threat from FIFA to ban the country should it proceed with the dissolution plan.

The decision was made after a meeting between government officials and FIFA executives in Zurich, Switzerland.

A statement issued after the meeting said: “The GoG shall take steps to discontinue the process for the winding up of the Ghana Football Association.”

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.

Below is the full statement

GHANA AND FIFA ACHIEVE BREAKTHROUGH IN FOOTBALL ADMINISTRATION

On Thursday August 16, 2018, a delegation of the Government of Ghana (GoG) led by the Minister for Youth and Sports, Isaac Asiamah (MP), and comprising the Deputy Chief of Staff, Mr. Samuel A.
