Clubs under GHALCA can meet but not the GFA - Deputy Attorney General explains

Published on: 12 July 2018

The Deputy Attorney General, Hon. Godfred Yeboah Odame has revealed reasons why the Ghana League Clubs Association can meet despite football crisis in the country.

Following the premiering of the investigative piece by ace journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas on corruption in Ghana football, the government of Ghana took steps in dissloving the GFA by halting all footballing activities.

Today, the High Court has appointed the Registrar of Companies as the official liquidator of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to steer the helm of affairs and help restore the image of the FA.

Speaking on Oyerepa FM, the Deputy Attorney General explained why GHALCA can meet but not the GFA.

"An order restraining the directors, members and officers of the GFA from holding meetings at all and doing anything relating to football," he said.

"They are in their right to present any petition to FIFA but the truth is that there must be respect for the laws of Ghana by the GFA and FIFA."

"FIFA itself when they came to Ghana indicated they have nothing against the government of Ghana enforcing its domestic laws in attempt to deal with illegality and criminality are concern."

"Unless it's the clubs themselves, if GHALCA is holding such meetings that's fine but GFA as an entity cannot hold any meeting can't exercise any powers at all," he added.
