Techiman City to launch appeal against demotion

Techiman City are unwilling to accept the decision of the Ghana Football Association Ethics Committee which demoted the club from the topflight on Wednesday after being found guilty of fixing a match.

The Ethics Committee ruled that Techiman City were involved in a bribery and match fixing scheme during Division One Match Day 22 encounter against Wa African United.

“I am really surprised at the ethics committee ruling and the only thing to do now is to appeal,” Techiman City president Charles Kwadwo Ntim told Joy Sports.

“The ethics committee is not the final judicial body so we will take the matter to the appeals committee.”

However, whistleblower, chief executive officer of Wa African United, Nana Gyamerah Kwabena Yiakwa II, who made the allegations against Techiman, says he is satisfied with the verdict.

“I am not surprised at the ruling because I was expecting it, one thing we should know is that one cannot do wrong and go free,” he said.

“According to our football rules the receiver and the giver are all guilty so if we are demoted so be it, we accept the ruling.”

It is yet unclear if this latest development will affect the commencement of the league slated for February 20.
