The Accra High Court are set to hear a substantive application by the Attorney General seeking an interlocutory injunction on Executives of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) from performing their duties.
The new application comes after the expiration of the 10-day injunction secured by the government in the High court on the 12th of June.
The government, as part of its moves to restructure the GFA as a result of revelations of corruption through Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ investigative piece, began some processes including a petition for the dissolution of the GFA.
However, the Ghana Football Association has put up a defense against the Attorney General’s petition at the High Court seeking for the dissolution.
The embattled Ghana’s highest governing football body in a 83-page response to the petition by the AG in collaboration with their own lawyers among others challenged the capacity of government to dissolve it.
The GFA’s lawyers argued that the Association, as a company limited by guarantee, was not formed in the interest of the public, but purely in the interest of its members and therefore the AG’s petition based on the “public interest” cannot stand.

The GFA lawyers also argue that the AG’s petition was in response to the video of the then president of the association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, where he allegedly took bribes.
