ExCO petitions FIFA over gov’t decision to dissolve GFA
The Executive Committee of the Ghana Football Association has petitioned the FIFA over the government decision to dissolve the Ghana FA after the investigative documentary by ace journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
The decision taken was made yesterday after their meeting.
A statement released by the Youth and Sports Ministry on Tuesday revealed that a government delegation, led by Isaac Asiamah, met with officials of the world football management body in Zurich, Switzerland, to adopt interim measures for the administration of football in Ghana.
It emerged that both parties also agreed that, pending the institution of definite interim measures for the administration of football in the country, Dr Kofi Amoah and Coach Oti Akenteng, have been mandated to constitute a Liaison Team with FIFA and CAF for football affairs in Ghana.
The team will seek to restore normalcy to the country’s football following the exposition of corruption in the administration of the game by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
The astute businessman will be assisted by Technical Director of the Ghana Football Association, Francis Oti Akenteng, with the duo tasked to facilitate the running of football in the country on the interim.
Dr Amoah was previously appointed to lead the interim five-member committee which was earlier appointed by government.
