The Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) has called on the Executive Committee members of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to step aside to pave way for an Interim Management Committee (IMC) to lead reforms and amendments to its current statutes.
GHALCA expressed regret over ten conduct of the immediate past GFA President and some members of the Executive Committee and others within the GFA, after they were caught on camera in a video by ace journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas in a bribery scandal.
According to a press release signed by Mr Kudjo Fianoo, chairman of GHALCA, the clubs were concerned with the ongoing legal tussle, which has disrupted all football activities in Ghana.
“The clubs in accordance with the statutes and regulations of the GFA resolved to call for an emergency congress and called on the current Executive Committee of the FA to step aside to pave way for an Interim Management Committee that would come out with a bouquet of reforms including any amendments to its current statutes and regulations to make the FA and Association Football credible, transparent, accountable, efficient, more effective and respected”.
Meanwhile the GHALCA has said it has approved of the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) invitation to Nana Samuel Brew-Butler and Dr. Kwesi Ndoum to be part of a meeting scheduled in Zurich on Thursday 28th June, 2018 between the Government of Ghana and FIFA to find a lasting solution to the impasse in Ghana football.
