Ghana FA Executive Committee member questions Police over seizure of headquarters

Wilfred Kwaku Osei speaks on condoning of the GFA premises in Accra

Ghana Football Association Executive Committee member Wilfred Kwaku Osei is unhappy by Police decision to label the FA headquarters a "crime scene" on the back of accusations of corruption and match-fixing. 

The football governing body has come into question following recent screening of an investigative documentary which exposed underhand practices of some high-ranking officials, including president Kwesi Nyantakyi, who has consequently resigned from post. 

“People are looking for political power. They are struggling for power, hence spreading all manners of lies," Osei told Happy FM

"Kwesi Nyantakyi’s enemies are capitalizing on this issue for political power.

“Only Congress can dissolve the Executive Committee, not the government. 

"I honestly don’t understand why the Ghana Football Association secretariat can be labelled as a "crime zone". 

"What has been committed there? Was someone killed there?"

On Saturday, the GFA Executive Committee announced a five-man team to hold talks with government in a bid to dissuade it from dissolving the FA. 

Goal understands the meeting proved futile for the ad-hoc committee as government reiterated its desire to continue with its plans.

Another meeting by representatives of the Ghana League Clubs Association (Ghalca) similarly ended fruitless. 

All football matches have been indefinitely suspended in Ghana.
