Court sets Aug 14th date for FA election injunction ruling

An Accra Fast Track High Court has set August 14th as the date for ruling in the interlocutory injunction request brought before the court by lawyer John Quayson. Significantly, this means the ruling will come off just three (3) days before the GFA extraordinary congress slated for August 17th when the election will be held.

On July 16th, lawyer for John Quayson filed an ex-parte motion to restrain the the Ghana Football Association from holding the Presidential Elections. The election he argued was in violation of the GFA constitution which required regional elections is held before the general elections.

Starr FM’s Wilberforce Asare who was in court today, reports that lawyer for the GFA Thadeus Sory argued vehemently against the suit prompting the presiding judge to order both parties to re-appear on August 14th for ruling.

Asare also reports that GFA stalwarts who were in court including President Kwesi Nyantakyi appeared quite happy about the outcome of proceedings.

The GFA elections are set for August 17th in Tamale. Incumbent president Kwesi Nyantakyi is contesting unopposed after Offeibea Ramatu and two others failed to return their endorsed nomination forms.
