The highest decision making body of Ghana football has petitioned FIFA asking for another chance to manage football in the West African nation.
FIFA appears to be collaborating with the government of Ghana in the latter’s quest dissolve the GFA and reform football in the country, following the Anas expose’ that has uncovered several rots in the beautiful game.
Government has had a meeting twice with FIFA without any representation from Ghana and in their latest meeting, the two parties formed a liaison team to oversee the affairs of football in the country until is things come to normal.
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.
