The Executive Committee member of the Ghana Football Association Wilfred Osei ‘Parma’ says the FA decided not to confront government because they knew the exparte injunction had expired before their meeting with FIFA last Friday in Accra.
On June 12, 2018, the country’s Commercial Court ruled that officials of the football association should refrain from performing their duties for ten days following Attorney General’s application for exparte injunction in their quest to dissolve the FA.
And the Tema Youth owner has stated that members of the Ghana Football Association decided not to challenge the government because they knew the injunction had expired before the meeting.
“In terms of legal advice we (Football Association) knew that the injunction had expired on Thursday (A day before the meeting) but we didn’t want to be confrontational,” Parma said in an interview with Kumasi based Oyerepa FM.
“I knew very well that the exparte injunction include weekends so where from these information that we were still under injunction,” he added.
“We decided to keep mute because FIFA’s position will eventually be our wish so there was no need for the FA to be in the meeting.”
He however noted that the Ghana FA would have been banned if government had inaugurated the Interim Management Committee.
“Fortunately, the IMC set up by the government was quashed after the meeting. Anything in that line is government interference which FIFA doesn’t entertain,” Parma concluded.
