Nania FC Getting Preferential Treatment?

Tue, 29 May 2007 Source: Antw, Ransford

As the Ghana Football Association(GFA) decides the fate of Abedi Pele's Nania FC, Okwahu United, Mighty Jets and Mariners for their allegedly indulging in match-fixing, Mr.Ransford Antwi, Director of SpaceFm, a Sunyani-based radio Station, and a former Management member of BA United FC submits to the football fraternity the FA's ruling in 1989, in a case involving the one-time Apostles of Power Soccer.

It is important to bring to the fore, the fact that, in the said case, no member of the then BA United team was invited to the FA to appear before the FA.

I hope this is useful for the sake of Ghana Soccer
