Lucy Quist quits normalisation Committee

Lucy Quist, the Vice Chairperson of the Normalisation Committee put together by FIFA to fix Ghana Football after the #12 investigations by Anas Aremeyaw Anas has resigned from the committee.

Announcing her decision on Facebook, the former Airtel Ghana CEO said: ” I would like to express my profound gratitude to my colleagues on the Normalisation Committee, FIFA, the State and people of Ghana for the opportunity to serve in the capacity of the Vice President of the NC for the last 8 months since inauguration in September 2018. For personal reasons, it is now time for me to leave the committee.

“The continued transformation of football in Ghana will require the support of everyone passionate about the game. I pray that all stakeholders will put their differences aside and focus on achieving the greater vision of football that not only produces great players for Ghana but by extension makes a positive impact on our economic fortunes.

“I am particularly proud of our work in bringing experienced people together in ad hoc committees to redefine our strategies for the national and domestic teams, referees and coaches, technical development, and marketing and sponsorship. Collectively the exercise produced blueprints for change and I commend the various committees for the great work they did”.

FIFA in September last year appointed the four-member Normalization Committee that will run Ghana football and organise election of new executives of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

The mandate of the committee which expired in March this year has been extended to September.
