“I’m not happy at all, I must be honest with you. I told the GFA president that whatever it takes to resolve this issue they should continue,” the Minister said.

“The GPL is an avenue for certain people in this country. Every time I go to the stadium, my doughnut will be bought and that is a means of income for somebody and these petty things help our people.

“So, make sure you resolve all the differences that we have to ensure the league starts well.”

This is not the first time there has been an injunction to halt the Ghana Premier League after King Faisal went to court for a similar situation in the 2013 league season.
