The World Amputee Football Governing Body has written to the treacherous group leading the Ghana Amputee Football Federation to desist from causing more harm to the development of Amputee Football in Ghana.
The treacherous group has halted the highly rated sport due to unnecessary and wicked deception, which eventually saw Ghana lose out on the two World Cup Appearances.
In a letter addressed to the ‘Treacherous Group’, the WAFF stated emphatically it had accepted the Ghana National Paralympic Committee as an official WAFF member in Ghana. The letter also said it had received all documents and payment of the membership fee, including a statement from the Ghana Sports Ministry acknowledging the NPC Ghana as the governing body of amputee football in Ghana.
The World Amputee Football Federation also entreated the ‘Treacherous Group’ to accept the decision taken by the governing body for the benefit of the players, adding that any further information from the WAFF will be sent to the Ghana Paralympic Committee and its representative officials as indicated by Mr Samson Deen, President of the NPC Ghana.
A group of persons led by the former Vice president of the Ghana Paralympic Committee, Mr Francis Adjetey Sowah, Philip Cecil Richter, Benjamin Charles Armah, Kuuku Dzane and Charles Narteh registered a company called Ghana Amputee Football Federation to halt the development of Amputee Football in Ghana.
They proceeded to Court to injunct an elective congress in 2013 and have since used malicious machinations against proper management of the sport.
Mr Samson Deen, President of the Ghana Paralympic Committee, during a meeting with Kuuku Dsane and Francis Adjetey Sowah to negotiate for Court Settlement of the matter between the treacherous group Ghana Amputee Football Federation vs National Sports Authority, Ministry of Youth and Sports, Ghana Amputee Football Association and Ghana Paralympic Committee. The next Court date is 22nd May 2023.
