An Accra High court today sat to hear substantive application filed by the Attorney General(AG) seeking an interlocutory injunction against Executives of the Ghana Football Association(GFA) from staying on as officials of the FA.
The AG was back in court, as part of government’s efforts to tidy-up the mess in football administration in the wake of the Number 12, Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ investigative piece, with an application to secure a longer ban until the substantive motion seeking to liquidate the GFA is determined.
The high court on June 12, 2018 granted an ex-parte application by the AG and placed a temporary 10-day ban on all GFA executives, but the deadline has expired.
