More refereeing controversy for Ghana as referee Adu Poku has been slapped with a suspension for awarding a dubious penalty in the Ghana Premier League
Tema Youth, playing away to the West African Football Academy (WAFA), took the lead in Sogakope, before the home side fought back from a goal down to win the game 2-1.
The Academy boys benefited from a wrong call by the centre referee to complete the comeback against the Harbour boys.
Below is the decision by the GFA's Match Review Panel.
''The Committee after thoroughly watching the video clip concluded that the referee awarded a very bad penalty against Tema Youth FC.
''According to the Review Panel, he referee’s position on the field of play was such that he could not have seen clearly the infringement he claimed to have seen.
''His defence before the review panel was unsuccessful and cannot be taken into consideration.
''Consequently, the Committee’s recommendation to suspend the referee Justice Adu Poku for the rest of the 2016/17 League season is upheld by the Executive Committee.''
