‘We have been left in the dark’ – GHALCA
The Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) has said they have been left in the dark by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalization Committee (NC) with information and reports regarding their activities since its institutionalization by the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA).
According to GHALCA, the four-member committee headed by Dr Kofi Amoah, which was mandated by football’s world governing body to bring Ghana football to normalcy had left them with no choice than to knock on their doors for information, which ought to be been communicated to them.
Mr Ebo Appiah, speaking in an interview on behalf GHALCA after their extraordinary meeting at the Accra Sports Stadium noted that there were ready to help the NC, should they open up on their activities as well as furnish them with their monthly report.
“We believe that as stakeholders who spend our energy, resources and money on our players, we expect that their monthly report to FIFA is made known to us as well,” Mr Appiah noted.
“We also want to get to know reasons why they were not able to complete their mandate, and if there is something for us to help we can because we are in the dark as to what is going on and to GHALCA, we want to know what really is going on and how we can be of help, so our football gets back to normalcy” he said.
According to Mr Appiah, GHALCA has formed a sub-committee, which would present their petition to the NC and hoping that within a week a feedback would be given to know the actual situation of Ghana football and the way forward.
“This is not about confrontation but a humble petition to the NC because clubs form about 70 per cent of Congress, so we need to know what is going on with our football and once they tell us, including what they have done in the past six months, we would understand why FIFA extended their mandate.
“FIFA only gave a press briefing of their extension but reasons were not mentioned, maybe we are the course, then we know how to help them to normalize,” he added.
