Accordingly, the Commission gets more time to take a detailed look into financial transactions of the Ghana Football Association specifically regarding cash paid towards the Black Stars’ participation at the World Cup by FIFA as well as GNPC, the official sponsors of the national team.

A host of officials of both the GFA and others related to the team as sponsors, fans, former players, committee, technical and management including GFA President Kwesi Nyantaki, former Sports Minister Hon.
