The Member of Parliament for Kumbungu Constituency, Ras Mubarak has hinted that the dissolving of the Ghana Football Association by government is illegal.
In an interview with Ohene Bampoe–Brenya on Happy FM‘s Anopa Bosuo Sports, Mubarak said the executive does not have the locus and mandate to make such a decision.
Mubarak, who is a Minority member of Parliamentary Committee to investigate the trending issue at the Ghana FA, insisted such a decision might be challenged in court.
“The decision by government is a populist decision because almost everybody is happy but I believe everything must be done in accordance with the law,” Mubarak told Happy FM.
“Legally, this decision by government is problematic because legally government can’t intervene. I am wondering how government will clarify this decision.”
“The constitution gives parliament the powers to investigate and look into any issue in the public interest.”
“In cleaning up a system, we take the bad ones out and leave the good ones. That’s why I believe this decision by government can be legally challenged in court.”
“I’m surprised Hon Isaac Asiamah made those comments. I am wondering if the minister consulted his lawyer at the ministry before coming out to make such a comment.”
“The government can’t dissolve the GFA because in law it won’t see the light of day.”
“The release from the government was very cautious so I don’t know why Hon Isaac Asiamah made such a comment.”
Owing to the fall out by an investigative piece by world acclaimed journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, the Presidency announced, yesterday, dissolving of the Executive Committee of the Ghana Football Association.
