GFA THREATENS LEGAL ACTION AGAINST PERSONS WHO DEFAME ITS OFFICIALS

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has issued a warning that any anyone who disparages its officials or diminishes the reputation of the Black Stars will face legal repercussions.

After Ghana was eliminated from the 2022 World Cup in Qatar’s group stage, the GFA has come under fire.

Additionally, the football association has been accused of corruption and meddling in player selection.

The GFA said in a statement that while it welcomes opinions, advice, and ideas from Ghanaians, it will not put up with slander directed at its officials.

The Association added that it has directed its attorneys to file lawsuits against people who are damaging the reputation of the national team.

“Unfortunately, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has noticed that a few persons are deliberately maligning and defaming the GFA and the Black Stars brand in an attempt to manufacture a non-existent scandal about the team, a section of the statement said.

“While the Association will continue to encourage feedback and opinions (devoid of insults, personal attacks, and brand devaluation), the protection of the brands from deliberate lies, misinformation and defamatory comments must be curbed, as the Black Stars remains a global brand that unites all Ghanaians.”

It added: “The Ghana Football Association has therefore instructed its lawyers to institute legal action against persons who defame the Association, its officials, products and destroy the Black Stars brand as well as the media platforms used to do same.

“The legal forum will provide the opportunity for these persons to bring any evidence to substantiate their allegations.

“The Association will continue to encourage opinions and comments being expressed aimed at improving the team and the brand.”
