Chief Executive Officer of Aduana Stars Albert Yahaya Commey has stated that reverberation that will befall the Ghana will be much worse than people are anticipating should FIFA ahead to impose ban on the West African country.
Ghana’s football came to a halt in June after the government applied to an Accra High Court to dissolve the country’s football governing body due to alleged corruption claims exposed by an investigation of undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
The GFA petitioned the world governing body, contesting the government’s legal jurisdiction to wind down the association, weeks after the Attorney General presented a petition to dissolve the GFA over corruption allegations.
However, the world governing football body on Monday issued a warning to the government to withdraw the court action by Monday, 27 August, 2018 or face its wrath.
The court action is deemed to be government interference in the sport as the laws of FIFA prohibit governments from interfering in the activities of football federations.
FIFA says it will ban the country from all football activities. This would affect next month’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Kenya if the Attorney General does not discontinue its action of seeking to dissolve the Ghana Football Association.
“The ban will have a serious repercussion against Ghana in areas that one might not know and that is the danger ahead of us,” he mentioned on 3FM.
“It doesn’t lie within our purview to do anything but we are affected innocently, and the dissolution will put the cub owners in a bad state,” he said.
According to Mr. Commey, football clubs might not recover from this since all activities have been brought to a halt and all signed contracts by the various clubs are being put to a stop hence the clubs are indirectly affected by this situation.
He said people with the passion to support football might quit if they lose interest for the game.
“If we don’t take time Ghana might not recover from this. There are those who have gone into football because of the passion they have hence if they lose the passion, there is no way they will contribute to football financially,” he noted.Read Full Story
