The Ghana Football Association has congratulated Justice Anin-Yeboah on his appointment as the new Chief Justice.
Justice Anin-Yeboah was sworn into office on Tuesday, 7 January 2019 by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House.
In a statement, the GFA said: “We are profoundly proud but unsurprised by the achievements and the well-deserved elevation of Justice Anin-Yeboah.”
As a former Chairman of the Disciplinary Committee of the Eastern Region FA, as well as both the Disciplinary and Appeals Committees of the GFA, the football governing body said his knowledge, dedication and humility were well-known.
The statement said it was as a result of Justice Anin-Yeboah’s remarkable qualities that world football governing body, FIFA, first appointed him as a member of its Ethics Committee, and later elected him to Chair FIFA’s Disciplinary Committee, adding that it was “historic in the sense that our proud compatriot, Justice Anin-Yeboah, was the first to be elected to that position following the reforms in FIFA.”
Prior to working with FIFA, Justice Anin-Yeboah had also served on the Appeals Committee of the Confederation of African Football.
The GFA said Justice Anin-Yeboah has glittered wherever he has worked, and the GFA is confident he would live up to the confidence reposed in him by both the Executive and Legislative arm of the government.
The GFA wished Chief Justice Anin-Yeboah the very best as he begins the journey.
