The Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) has agreed with the government of Ghana to put in place interim measures to allow for the continuation of football in Ghana.

The Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) has agreed with the government of Ghana to put in place interim measures to allow for the continuation of football in Ghana.
The agreement was reached after a fruitful meeting between the government and representatives of FIFA in Accra on Friday, 22 June 2018.

At the end of the meeting, it was agreed that: “Both FIFA and the Ghanaian government have zero-tolerance for corruption, criminality and all other forms of illegality.
“The government of Ghana has the right to enforce its national laws against criminal conduct and illegality.

“FIFA, in consultation with the Ghanaian government, will put in place interim measures to allow for the continuation of football in Ghana.
“The Ghana government delegation will continue discussions with FIFA in Zurich, Switzerland, for the purpose of finalising interim arrangements regarding football in Ghana.”

The meeting between government and FIFA comes on the heels of Ghana government’s decision to dissolve the Ghana Football Association (GFA) after an investigative documentary led by Anas Aremeyaw Anas uncovered massive rot at the GFA.

The president of the GFA, Kwesi Nyantakyi, who was caught on camera allegedly taking bribe and negotiating ways to dupe Ghana football through a sponsorship deal, has resigned, although he has denied any wrongdoing.
