#Number12: Dissolve GFA immediately – Nii Lante to government

Former Minister of Youth and Sports, Nii Lante Vanderpuye, has called on government to dissolve the entire hierarchy of the Ghana Football Association, in order cure the canker of corruption at the association.

He was reacting to the revelations from Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ latest documentary on corruption in football and politics, where several high ranking members in the GFA, including the President Kwesi Nyantakyi, were implicated in acts of corruption.

Speaking on the Citi Breakfast Show on Thursday, Nii Lante Vanderpuye called on government to take a bold step in disbanding the GFA, as that in his view, is the only way the problem of corruption will be cured.

“The government must dissolve the GFA with immediate effect and face the consequences from FIFA.

“It is the only thing that will save Ghana Football. Nigeria did it and today they are reaping the benefits. They incurred a 6-month ban for it, but today they are in the World Cup.

“We didn’t qualify for the World Cup so this is the time for us to take that action.

“It will give us enough time to reorganize our football before the World Cup in Qatar comes around. The GFA is an association under the Sports Ministry so it can be done,” he said.

“An interim committee should be put in place so we can restructure. A few representatives from GHALCA and some football people can make up that committee.

“A few GFA officials have shown some integrity, for example J.F Mensah and Lawyer Kweku Eyiah and these are people who can take us forward.

“The fact is if we don’t dissolve the GFA and all the regional FA this problem can never be fixed, because all the people in charge have been put there by Kwesi Nyantakyi,” he added.
