Injunction looms over Premier League


Berekum Arsenal have threatened to put an injunction on the Ghana Premier League until all outstanding issues are dealt with.

The 2015/16 season of the league is scheduled to start on Saturday February 20, but Arsenal has accused the Ghana Football Association (GFA) of trying to smuggle Techiman City into the league.

Public Relations Officer of the club, Seidu Alhassan, in an interview with Class Sports’ Hussein Hassan Thursday February 18, said the GFA was not treating the other clubs fairly.

“From day one, we could see the FA was trying foul means to make sure that the league started because, as we speak now, we don’t know which clubs have qualified to play in the premiership.

“We know of 14 clubs so far, which have qualified to play in the premiership. With the pending issue in Zone Three and another pending issue in Zone One, we believe the FA has to resolve these issues amicably before the league starts, but we have not heard anything.

“The Ethics Committee has come out with a decision demoting Techiman City. Yesterday, we were told [Techiman City’s] stay of execution had been denied. So, the question we are asking is: ‘Why has the Ethics Committee not come out to tell us Techiman City has been demoted, Team A or B has qualified to play in the Premier League, so that we can be assured that all teams playing in the premiership are playing genuinely.

“We believe the FA is not treating the other clubs fairly. For that matter we want justice before the league starts.

“We are heading towards court to place an injunction on the league for all issues to be cleared before the league starts,” he said.
