The Ghana Football Association (GFA) announced receiving $900,000 from the Normalisation Committee as payment for the arbitration settlement by Globacom Ghana.

The report further stated that the initial amount received by the Normalisation was $1, 000,000 but paid $100,000 as a legal fee to the lawyer who was involved in helping the GFA out.

Dr. Amoah has allegedly been accused of corrupt practices from the media and a section of Ghanaians.

The former President of the defunct Normalisation Committee has however explained that he made the rightful payment to the lawyer who provided legal service to help the Normalisation Committee get the arbitration settlement from GLO.

"In Ghana here when you do something that should be commended they want to turn it around, we have to stop this things, you media people have to stop this things," he told Atinka FM.

"we need to engage our media people and make them know that you got to do your work in a way that will help the progress of the society."

"There's this thinking that everybody is corrupt, when you are killing yourself for your nation around errr the clock somebody has won an award is sitting there nobody is do anything."

"As a matter of fact the lawyer who succeeded in collecting this money must be commended where somebody positive has been done, then we want to castigate the person for doing the right thing."

In 2014 The Ghana Football Association received $1.9 million from Globacom Ghana, representing part of the outstanding debt owed it in unpaid sponsorship fees for the Premier League.

Beneficiaries of this payment by the league's former sponsor, include Clubs that played in the 2012-13 Premier League season.

The Ghana Football Association will be meeting Dr. Kofi Amoah on the way forward to resolve the issue.
