Form your own club before you meddle in football - Gyan tells government
Bofoakwa Tano director Yaw Boateng Gyan has launched a stinging potshot at President Nana Akufo Addo, asking the Ghanaian leader to 'form his own club' before attempting to dissolve the FA.
The former national organiser of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) says the president must form 'Akyem Royals' Football club to have a stake and say on how the game is run in the West African nation.
The vicious attack comes on the heels of the resolve of the president to dissolve the Ghana Football Association which has been thrown into a turmoil after an investigative piece by journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas revealed widespread corruption in the game.
The country's government has initiated steps to dissolve the FA - in a move which is being challenged by the FA and several other people.
While the government insist total dissolution is the way to restore confidence and hush up the mess, others believe the move is counter-productive.
And Bofoakwa Tano director Yaw Boateng Gyan has launched a sensational attack on the Ghanaian leader over his stance.
“The Association is made up of people with football clubs who have voted for some group of people to lead them and if they have been found wanting of a crime, we have to be made to deal with our people, you don’t impose people who do not have football clubs on us," he told Accra-based Vision 1 FM
“Nothing stops Akufo-Addo from forming Akyem Royals so jhe becomes a football administrator. Then he can join congress and have a say in football.
"Until then, he has no right to meddle in the activities of the football Association.”
Supporters of the ruling New Patriotic Party are more likely to respond in equal measure as the dissolution attempts takes a political twist.
