Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom has cautioned the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to change their ways or else football in the country will suffer.

Elmina Sharks were handed a 2-1 defeat by new champions of the Ghana Premier League, Aduana Stars on Sunday, amidst a controversial second half penalty against the debutants.

Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom, the financier of the Progressive People’s Party (PP) and owner of Elmina Sharks has expressed his displeasure at officiating in the game Aduana Stars and capitalized on the incident against Aduana Stars to slam the GFA via his official Facebook page.

When is football not football? When administrators strategize to cheat. When referees take bribes to decide the outcome of matches, when losers on the field of play rely on “ways and means” off the field to win points, when fans believe they must make opposing side afraid to play, when players are given money to play against their own teams, etc. etc. This is the football I have come to experience in this first year of our team, the Fearsome Elmina Sharks being in the Premier League.

We had negative experiences in Division Two. The Division One experience was sometimes frightening with some of our players and officers sometimes ending up in the hospital due to attacks by opposing fans and officials. But we thought the Premier League would be more disciplined, orderly and with all the media exposure, more focused on the action on the field.


The GFA must change its habits and attitudes. It must promote exciting soccer where winning will depend on the players and how well they play. There are reasons why the Ghana Football League lacks sponsors. For me, it is unexciting performance due to cheating referees, administrators and undisciplined fans.

Our team is here to stay. So I will not remain as silent as I have been about these problems. I enjoy soccer. And I can’t sit by and watch the stealers keep stealing.

By the way, Aduana Stars are on top of the league and soon to be declared champions officially.


Our team lost to them twice this season. Twice, it was the referee who decided the outcome. I know when we lose to a better side.

No wonder not many people go to the football venues to watch our local matches but parade around wearing Man U, Man City, Chelsea, Barcelona and other jerseys here in Ghana.

Change must come!
