FIFA suspends aid to Togo



FIFA has suspended financial aid to Togo Football Federation (FTF) in the wake of a mismanagement scandal at the headquarters in Lome.

The world’s football governing body has sent a letter to notify local officials of its decision, after denouncing the FTF’s inability to justify how it used the $432 000 subvention for the 2011-2012 period.

A delegation from FIFA paid an evaluation visit to the West African country in October after which officials said a number of misappropriations of funds had been discovered.

Togo football federation is undergoing a fresh crisis torched off by Emmanuel Adebayor’s decision to quit the Sparrow Hawks following the non-payment of match bonuses after their win over Morocco in a friendly match in mid-November.

Some members of the executive committee began a strike last week after calling for investigations into how the €35 000 paid to Togo FA by the Royal Moroccan Football Federation was spent.

The head of a political party and the first vice president of the FTF have asked Togo Prime Minister Artheme Seleagodji Ahoomey-Zunu to muscle in to the crisis and help bring the Tottenham striker back to the fold before January’s Africa Cup of Nations.
