The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has congratulated the newly sworn in Chief Justice, Kwasi Anin Yeboah.
Justice Anin Yeboah has been known by the football fraternity for his previous roles right from the chairmanship of the Disciplinary Committee of the Eastern Region FA to the chairmanship of the GFA’s Disciplinary and Appeals committees.
“We are profoundly proud, but unsurprised by the achievements and the well-deserved elevation of Justice Anin Yeboah,” a statement from the country’s football-governing body said on Tuesday, a few hours after the Supreme Court judge was sworn in.
According to the GFA, Justice Anin Yeboah’s knowledge, dedication and humility while serving the Association “are well known to us”.
“It was through these remarkable qualities that world soccer governing body, FIFA, first appointed him as a member of its Ethics Committee, and later elected him to Chair FIFA’s Disciplinary Committee.”
Prior to that, the Ghanaian judge had also served on the Appeals Committee of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
“Justice Anin Yeboah has glittered whenever he has worked, and we are confident he will [justify] the confidence both the Executive and Legislative arm of our government have showed in him.”
