GFA Was Forced To Hand Over 2010 FIFA Cash

???????????????????????????????GHANA Football Association (GFA) Communications Director, Ibrahim Sannie Darra has revealed that the FA was forced to return the US$11.7 million earned from the 2010 World Cup after ex-Sports Minister Akua Sena Dansua, who is now Ghana’s Ambassador to Germany, issued a threat against Kwesi Nyantakyi.

The FA had made plans of investing the money into the improvement of football structures in the country after drafting a 71-paged development plan.

“What happened with that money was that Akua Sena Dansua put a phone call through to Kwesi Nyantakyi and told him if you want your peace of mind in this country, bring all the money. It was a threat,” Sannie Darra told Starr 103.5FM on Extra Time.

A similar situation has confronted the GFA again as the Presidential Commission of Inquiry has ordered the nation’s football governing body to pay up the entire US$8m million earned from the 2014 World Cup.

The GFA is adamant to release the remaining US$4 million after paying government the loan of US$4 million used in settling appearance fees of the Black Stars during Brazil 2014 tournament.
