The Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalization Committee will request for extension of time from FIFA to complete their mandate, GhanaCrusader.com can exclusively reveal.

The Committee, headed by Dr. Kofi Amoah, a business magnate and three others, Madam Lucy Quist, Lawyer Duah Adonten and Madam Naa Odofoley Nortey, were tasked to normalize Ghana football by FIFA on September 13, 2018, following an exposé into corruption and match-fixing by controversial investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

FIFA handed them three tasks to:

1. run the GFA’s daily affairs.

2. review the GFA statutes to ensure compliance with the requirements of FIFA and CAF, particularly art. 15 of the FIFA Statutes and once the GFA statutes meet the requirements of FIFA and CAF.

3. organize and conduct elections of a GFA executive committee on the basis of the revised GFA statutes.

The specified period of time during which the normalization committee shall perform its functions shall expire when all of the above-mentioned tasks have been properly fulfilled, but by no later than 31 March 2019.

The Committee has been in office for nearly four months and have held meetings with stakeholders including Club CEOs and Owners. They have also scheduled a consultative meeting with clubs captains next week as they seek cover all spheres of the game before their tenure ends on March 31, 2018.

GhanaCrusader.com can however reveal that the Committee will seek for extension of the period handed them to complete their mandate. Sources within the Committee claim the disunity within the football community is such that handing after six months could cripple the game further.

We also understand the Committee has struggled to raise funds, thus, their inability to develop a novelty competition for football clubs in the country.

Last month, the Normalisation Committee told Ghana’s Parliament that it needs an astronomical $1.5 million to see out its mandate.

Mr. Amoah’s Committee Parliamentary select committee on Sports, Youth and Culture the money will be used to see out its plans including a new competition for local clubs in the country among others.
