    What has happened to the legal issues involving Wa African United and Techiman City. Mmmmmm, so the alleged corrupt practices at the GFA is really true. Abedi's wife served a ban from football and all football related activities due to a so called march fixing involving Nania FC and another club. No wonder Ghanaians would now prefer to watch a Newcastle united and Norwich city march instead of a Hearts of Oak Kotoko march.
