Injunction Placed On GFA Elections

An Accra Fast Track Court has placed an interim injunction on the GFA’s Presidential Elections which were slated for the 18th of August in Tamale.

Justice Mustapha Logo issued the injunction after receiving an ex-parte motion filed by one lawyer Bright to restrain the the Ghana Football Association from holding the Presidential Elections.

 The basis of the motion lay in the fact the according to the GFA’s Statutes, the Presidential Elections were to be held after the district and regional elections. 

However, the GFA’s calender for September showed that the presidential elections were going to be held before the district and regional elections.

According to Metro TV’s Henry Addo, who was at the court, Justice Logo granted the injunction after he was presented with copies of the GFA’s constitution which confirmed Lawyer Bright’s case.

The court has therefore asked the Ghana Football Association to appear in 10 days to respond to the motion. Background On Wednesday, a lawyer John Kwame Quayson, filed a suit to place a court injunction on the GFA’s Presidential elections.

Quayson, who said he was a football administrator, filed the case together with the Dynamic Heroes of Winneba to stop the elections from going ahead.

The Ghana Football Association was duly served with the suit. What’s next?

The Ghana Football Association has told Citi Sports that it will respond to the case within the ten-day period if they are properly served with a notice of a full injunction by Dynamic Heroes, John Kwame Quayson and other entity willing to be plaintiffs on the matter.
