GFA presidents can only serve for maximum 8 years now

The term of office for the president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has been fixed at two terms, which is four years each, according to draft statutes submitted to congress by the Normalisation Committee.


The GFA president previously had an unlimited term of office and Kwesi Nyantakyi, the last president of the association served for 13 years.

The Normalisation Committee (NC) has announced at the ongoing Ghana Football Association (GFA) extra-ordinary congress at the Physician and Surgeon Council that the maximum term of office for the GFA president is going to be a maximum of two terms.

The extra-ordinary congress of the Ghana Football Association is aimed at getting the members of the GFA to adopt a draft statute by the Normalisation Committee.


The Normalisation Committee was set up after the Anas expose’ which caught some match and football officials on camera receiving monies suspected to be a bribe to review the statutes of the Ghana Football Association to avoid future happenings.
