FIFA/CAF liaison team ends work today

The work of the two-man CAF/FIFA Liaison Team will end today as the Normalisation committee is set to take over to run the affairs of Ghana football.

FIFA announced the appointment of Ghana Football Association's technical director Francis Oti Akenteng and Dr. Kofi Amoah as liaison officers to mediate between them and CAF as they seek to ensure the continuous running of football in the country.

This decision came after an Accra High Court granted an injunction restraining officials of the nation's football governing body from carrying out all official activities over an investigative piece by ace journalist Anas Amereyaw Anas on corruption in Ghana football.

As a result, all football activities were halted after the government pf Ghana filed a lawsuit against the football governing in the country to retrain them from running the football.

However, FIFA instructed government to drop charges against the Ghana Football Association over what he termed as undue influence or risk avoid a ban.

Government rescinded its earlier stance and agreed to collaborate with FIFA and CAF in forming a Normalisation Committee to replace the current Executive Committee of the GFA.

As a result, CAF first Vice President Amaju Pinnick is in Accra, Ghana today with his team members where he is serving as CAF/FIFA Representative and Chef De Mission of the Normalisation Committee to bring Ghana Football Association back to its footing.
