Amanda Clinton is helping the GFA fight government’s decision to dissolve the Association

A member of the legal team of the Ghana Football Association, Amanda Clinton has criticized the government’s decision to dissolve the association.

The government remains committed to its resolve to disband the GFA following an investigation piece by Anas Aremeyaw Anas which uncovered deep rooted systematic corruption at the FA resulting in the resignation of Kwesi Nyantakyi as the President of the association.

The government, has as part of steps aimed at dissolving the embattled association, appointed a registrar general to supervise the liquidation of GFA assets.

But Amanda Clinton is of the view that the government is setting a bad precedent with its decision. The lawyer in an interview with Citi FM averred that standard procedure requires the remaining 17 members of the FA executive committee who were not captured in the exposé to carry out the reforms.

“We have to consider this liquidation as the absolute last resort in terms of any company being run down. So the stage before the liquidation is literally to reorganize the company so that you can win back the confidence of all stakeholders.

If you have 17 executive members who are untainted and unaccused then standard company policy would suggest that those 17 if given first opportunity are competent enough to work with all stakeholders”, she said.

Amanda Clinton suggested that the government’s public interest considerations did not outweigh the legal, equitable and public interest considerations that favor the GFA.

She also suggested that the untainted and uncaused directors and EXCO members (17 altogether) needed at least 6 months and not just 4 days to restructure the GFA, following the resignation of their former President. The former President resigned on the 8th of June 2018 and an ex parte application by the Attorney General to start the winding down process was heard by the court on the 12th of June 2018.
