Ghana FA elections to go forward after court ruling

Kwesi NyantakyiThe Ghana Football Association will go ahead with its elections scheduled for Tamale on Tuesday after court strikes out injunction case

The Ghana Football Association is set to organise its presidential elections on Tuesday, August 18, 2015 in Tamale.

This is after an Accra High Court dismissed a case brought against the game’s governing body by John Quayeson, a private legal practitioner.

Quayeson was contesting why the Ghana FA has decided to hold the presidential elections before the regional and district level elections.

Ghana FA’s lawyer Thaddeus Sory argued that Quayeson has no locus in the football circles to drag the Association to court concerning its upcoming elections.

The judge struck out the case and ordered the plaintiff to pay an amount of $ 2000 (GHC 8000) to the Ghana Football Association.

Before the court case began, incumbent Kwesi Nyantakyi was the only person to have submitted his nominations form.

The Caf Executive Committee member is set for a third straight term in office when the Ghana FA extraordinary congress comes off on Tuesday.

This is the second time Nyantakyi is competing unopposed.

Right after the court case, the Ghana FA has quickly announced that it has temporarily moved its head office to Tamale in the Northern Region as it makes preparations for the presidential elections.
