The Ghana Football Association has overcome a legal hurdle to enable it hold its congress to elect new executives.

An Accra High court on Friday dismissed an injunction application brought before it against the Ghana Football Association (GFA), seeking to prevent it from organizing it’s congress to elect new executives.

The suit was filed by a private legal practitioner John Quayson, together with the football club, Dynamic Heroes of Winneba, to stop the GFA from going ahead with congress to elect a new president.

Presiding judge RB Batu, said the plaintiff did not have the locus to sue the GFA, considering the fact that he is not a member of the association.

In dismissing the motion, the Judge also slapped a cash award of Ghc8,000 on the complainant.

The ruling therefore paves the way for the GFA elections.

The incumbent GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi, who is going unopposed in the contest is likely receive massive endorsement from congress.

He has been the GFA President since 2005.
