The Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) Coordinator on player registration, Mr Nkoo Joseph has threatened legal action against the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

This development comes about after SSNIT claimed that, the GFA was not complying with its directive to register players across various divisions.

Speaking on Kumasi FM, Mr Nkoo said that the company had written to the GFA demanding data of all Premier League players, but there was no response and would take take them if they fail to meet their demands.

“We have written to the GFA to demand the data of players of all the premier league clubs, but there was no response.

“We are happy they have released the data themselves, hence we will go there with their own data to give us details for us to register them.

“We will take legal actions against the GFA if they do not heed to our advice,” he said.

Mr Nkoo further revealed that they were surprised to see the whooping number of players employed by the association as released by the GFA.

The GFA announced that Ghana Football employs total of 70, 672 players which included Premier League (1019), Division One League (2,253), Second and Third and division (43,700), Women’s League (600) and Juveniles Leagues (23,000).

“After the GFA president released their data of employing over 70,000 workers,we were stunned by the numbers, hence suggesting they produce their SSNIT numbers,” he added.

Mr Nkoo revealed that they had earlier taken legal action against Ashantigold SC but the case was settled out of court.
