Breaking News: Abraham Boakye's case against GFA dismissed, slapped with fine

Abraham Boakye

Abraham Boakye has suffered a humiliating defeat  in court after an Accra High Court dismissed his claims of corruption against Ghana Football Association (GFA) and slapped him with a $3,000 fine.

In a landmark ruling, His Lordship Justice Adjei Frimpong ruled that Boakye failed to prove his claims against the GFA after the latter accused the country’s governing body corruption in a sponsorship deal.

Boakye, also known as One Man Supporter, took the GFA went to court claiming he brought officials of Glo to the GFA to broker a sponsorship deal for the Ghana Premier League worth US$15m.

The court finally ruled on the matter in Accra on Friday dismissing Boakye’s claims while confirming that Afrisat was the legitimate company that brokered the deal.

Boakye, a branding ambassador for Glo, was only chosen to wear the company’s paraphernalia at football matches to promote the brand.

But he went court saying he wants 15% commission of the $15m paid to him as agency fee claiming he was cheated by the GFA as he brought the Nigerian officials to meet the GFA therefore he brokered the deal.

However, the Nigerian firm Glo delivered an embarrassing blow to his ambitions of getting the commission when the case was being heard, insisting to the court that Boakye played no role.

At the crux of his legal battle against the GFA was Boakye’s assertion that he brought officials of the Nigerian company to Ghana to sponsor the Black Stars and the local league.

But Glo said they were already interested in sponsoring Ghana football as part of their marketing strategy for the start of their Ghana operations insisting they have no contract with Boakye as their marketing agency.
