Bofoakwa Drag GFA To Court

Premiership side, Bofoakwa Tano, say they are heading for court to compel the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to enforce an order by the Disciplinary Committee.

This, according to the club, is to secure the ¢4 million entitled Bofoakwa from a fine imposed on King Faisal.

In a letter to the GFA, Eric Ansah Ankomah, solicitor for Bofoakwa, said the action had become necessary following the failure or refusal of Faisal to pay the fine as directed by the committee.

The letter said the GFA had failed to live up to its obligations as contained under Article 39 (1) and 39 (8) of the GFA Reulations which state that a club that fails to pay fines within the stipulated 14 days shall forfeit its next league or FA Cup match and the necessary sanctions under forfeiture of matches would apply.

The letter said two previous letters by the club reminding the GFA of the issue went unheeded, hence the need to take this last action.
