Match-Fixing: GFA has something against Ashgold - Nana Kwasi Darling

Published on: 17 May 2022

Former Sporting Director of Ashanti Gold SC, Nana Kwasi Darling has alleged that the club is being punished in the match-fixing case because the Ghana FA has something against the outfit.

On Monday, May 16, 2022, a release by the GFA announced that the Obuasi-based club has been demoted to the Division Two League after it was found guilty of engaging in a fixed match in the game against Inter Allies FC last season.

Speaking to Luv FM in an interview, Nana Kwasi Darling said he is shocked. According to him, the GFA is going after Ashanti Gold SC because none of the officials at the club voted for President Kurt Okraku.

“I did not see anything until the boy turned to score himself.

“I was telling everybody in the stadium; people could see my reaction that he [Hashmin Musah] must be arrested.

“You know, the whole show is not even about Inter Allies; the target is AshGold because AshGold was and never voted for Kurt Okraku,” Nana Kwasi Darling said.

The football administrator added, “Nobody from AshGold voted for Kurt Okraku and that I joined their number one opposition leader, so everything is now centred around AshGold; what about Inter Allies? The one that scored the two goals?

“They will not even cross two terms; they will just go for one term because of their deeds; it will hunt them.”

In the latest update, Ashanti Gold SC is set to appeal the verdict of the GFA Disciplinary Committee.
