#Number12: Dr Kofi Amoah appointed to lead Liaison Team with FIFA & CAF
Dr Kofi Amoah has been appointed by the government of Ghana to head a newly-formed Liaison Team as the government works to restore normalcy to the country’s football following the exposition of corruption in Ghana football by ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
He will be assisted by Technical Director of the Ghana Football Association, Francis Oti Akenteng, with the duo tasked to facilitate communication between government on one hand and world’s football governing body FIFA and the Confederation of African Football (CAF) on the other, while interim measures for the administration of football are being sought.
The team was formed after the Sports Minister, Isaac Asiamah, led a government delegation to meet FIFA in Zurich last Friday to fashion out a road map to restoring sanity to football administration in the country.
Below is the statement
The business mogul was initially named in a 5-member committee put in place by the government to work out reforms in the country’s football.
However, GHALCA chairman, Kudjoe Fianoo, withdrew from the committee, and the committee has yet to be inaugurated.
Football has ground to a halt in the country after government reacted to the Anas exposé by petitioning the high court to dissolve the FA and placed an injunction on all football activities in the country.
