Breakdown of GFA’s inherited debt of over GHC11 million

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) is currently in huge debt following the revelation that the Association owes in excess of GHc11 million.

The details of the debts were contained in a document titled “GFA Legacy Debts” which was presented to club administrators during a recent Executive Council meeting.

Divided into cedis and dollar components, the legacy debt in the dollar currency is at $470,700.00 while that of Cedis is GHS 10,079,440.00.

The Kurt Okraku administration came into office last November, having taken over as FA President from the disgraced Kwesi Nyantakyi.
