Sports Ministry Responds To FIFA´s Threat


Ghana´s Sports Ministry has responded to FIFA´s commination to bar the country from all football activities, if a court case mooted by the Government of Ghana (GoG), to liquidate the assets of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), is not relinquished by 27th August 2018.

The ministry, in a letter signed by the substantive minister, Isaac Kwame Asiamah, outlined current developments as a result of earlier meetings between the world football governing body and the ministry, and hence requested another engagement, so the two could have an amicable solution to the prevailing stand-off as regards Ghana football.

The letter also highlights the fact that the ministry and for that matter, the GoG has no interest in interfering in football issues as it is obviously aware of the consequences, but rather these steps, taken with the direction of and in consultation with FIFA,  are meant to achieve the desired goal for the people of Ghana.

Meanwhile, the tone of FIFA´s letter seem to state that they are in the dark as no progressive information, seem not to be coming from the Sports Ministry and Ghana government.

The investigative piece got many administrators and officials on the continent being suspended and banned by both CAF and FIFA, with the notable one being Kwesi Nyantakyi, who resigned his posts as the GFA chief, Vice of CAF and member of FIFA Executive Council.

Below is the full letter from Ghana´s Sports Ministry:
