The Attorney General's Department has triggered articles both Act 179 (The Company's Act as well as Act 180 (The official Liquidation Act).

Gloria Akufo, the Minister of Justice and Attorney General cited the Dzamefe Commission's report and the Anas exposé that implicated the GFA of corruption and several other wrong doings to buttress government's desire to restrain the GFA from carrying out their day to day activities.

"The higher the GFA is allowed to stay in office, the lower we sink. GFA has undermined its existence. The GFA has become obscene emblem of scandal, Corruption and illegal enterprise", argued the Attorney General its writ.

The attempt by government to dissolve the Ghana FA is from the fallout from the Anas exposé that has uncovered several rots in Ghana football.
