Nana Aba Anamoah, a media figure, has called for the dissolution and re-establishment of Ghana’s Football Association. According to her, not only is the football league dead, but the current FA has done an inadequate job of governing football in the country.
Nana Aba Anamoah told 3Music TV: “I used to work with Kurt when he was doing the FA Cup. I used to host it for him. “And I expected Kurt Okraku to do better, but he hasn’t. I expected Henry Asante Twum to perform better. He has not done better.”

“Our football has died! Have you followed the local league? Forget about the Black Stars; they are irrelevant. The true issue is with our local league. “It has died!” She said.

The television journalist added that, while Ghanaians have been protesting and pushing for improved management of the football league, especially the Black Stars, these rallies may have little impact.

Nana Aba Anamoah stated that the FA should be abolished until a FIFA ban is obtained to put an end to operations.

This, she argued, will help organize things and help the country’s football league expand. “Putting a house in order does not imply putting friends and buddies there.

“It means putting sensible people to work,” she explained. Her comments come after some Ghanaians, led by sports journalists Saddick Adams, popularly known as Sports Obama, Veronica Commey, and Patrick Osei Agyemang, went on a demonstration dubbed ‘Save Ghana Football’  in Accra on Wednesday. Protesters are demanding drastic measures be taken to salvage Ghana’s dying football industry.

The protest was fueled by the abysmal performance of the senior national team, the Black Stars, at the 34th Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in the Ivory Coast.

The Black Stars’ elimination from the group stage of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations marks the third major event in a row that the squad has failed to advance from the first round.

The Ghana Football Association, run by Kurt Okraku, is looking for its fifth Black Stars coach since taking office five years ago. Following the demonstration, the organizers handed a 15-point petition to the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin.
