ACCRA : Officials raid GFA offices
|GFA President, Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi|| |
Officials of the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) formerly known as SFO have beseiged the offices of the Ghana Football Association, barricaded it while restricting the movement of officials and staff at the premises.
The officials also seized computers and files belonging to GFA and preventing officials from entering or leaving the bulding.
No official statement has been made by the EOCO as to this line of action, however recent controversies about the activities of the GFA as regards the $15 Million Glo sponsorship of the Ghana Premier league has led to calls for the nation’s football governing body to be probed.
Earlier, the SFO invited the President of GFA, Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi to appear before it in connection with the Glo sponsorship of the Premier
League but he declined stating that the SFO had no legal mandate to probe him .
Last week, FIFA also issued a statement in support of the GFA president indicating that the government could only order investigations into the disbursement of money it gave to the FA but not funds from corporate bodies.
