Ghana Football Association(GFA)could be banned by world football governing body(FIFA)over government interference.

FIFA on Friday warned Ghana that they risk an international ban if they should carry on with a government-ordered Commission of Enquiry of the activities of the Black Stars at the 2014 World Cup tournament in Brazil.

Ghana was a subject of ridicule at the tournament when their government had to airlift $3million to pay for the players' entitlements,after they threatened not to play in one of the matches.

"We would like to remind you Fifa member associations must manage their affairs independently, without any third party influence." A FIFA statement read.

"Should any decision be rendered by the Commission against GFA officials thereby removing them from office, it would be considered as interference in the GFA affairs and the case would be brought to Fifa's highest instances for appropriate sanctions."

"We refer to the power that the Commission would have to remove any member of the Executive Committee or the President of the GFA in case of adverse findings," the letter addressed to GFA General Secretary Emmanuel Gyiman reads.

Nigeria was provisionally banned by FIFA after a court injunction ousted the NFF executive board from power,it was after the decision was reversed that the ban was lifted.
