Renowned legal practitioner and sports enthusiast Moses Foh-Amoaning has slammed the world football governing body, FIFA for threatening to suspend Ghana if the petition to start the liquidation process of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) is not withdrawn from court.

In a letter addressed to the two-man liaison team currently responsible for the administration of football in the country, FIFA said it views the ongoing liquidation process by the government as an interference in the administration of football.

"To date, the scope of the investigation into the allegations of widespread match-fixing and corruption within the GFA remains unclear. However, the Bureau considers that the petition introduced by the Attorney General to the High Court of Justice to start the liquidation process of the GFA constitutes an undue influence in the affairs of the GFA in contravention of art. 14 par. 1 of the FIFA Statutes."

FIFA added that if the petition is not withdrawn by 10:00 GMT on August 27, the GFA will be suspended with immediate effect.

However, in an interview with Nana Yaw Kesseh on Peace FM's "Kokrokoo" Morning Show, Tuesday, Foh-Amoaning wondered why FIFA would want to suspend the country’s FA when they were part of the process from the beginning.

According to him, “Ghana can take FIFA on if it goes ahead with the suspension because they agreed after watching the video (Anas’ number 12 documentary) that there was corruption and the exchange of money. They can go ahead and suspend us…government should not be shaken by this”.
