The Executive Committee who have been sidelined by government in the process of trying to restructure football in Ghana has called on FIFA to hear its plea and is understood a six months’ probation would be embraced.

According to the petition “the GFA shall not interfere in the works of the Ethics Committee and shall embrace any decision that the Ethics Committee may come out with and that the Referees Appointment Committee has also been dissolved, thus all the competitions of the GFA have temporary been put on hold.

“That a five-member team comprising of Messrs Kweku Eyiah (Leader), Benjamin Nab Eyison, Kurt Okraku (Spokesperson), Isaac Addo and Samuel Opoku Nti, has been tasked to meet Government for a resolution of the current impasse as well as draw up a program for lasting reforms, where the GFA shall soon come out with a road map for the elections of a substantive President in accordance with its statutes”.

Kwesi Nyantakyi, who was at the centre of the scandal resigned from GFA, CAF and FIFA, but he is still serving a 90-day ban imposed on him by world football governing body.
