Former Asante Kotoko head coach, Michael Osei has entreated the Normalisation Committee to "work faster" to avert any unnecessary pressure.
FIFA, in consultation with the Government of Ghana, appointed Dr. Kofi Amoah, Lucy Quist, Naa Odofoley Nortey, and Lawyer Dua Adonten as the four-member committee to restore Ghana football to its normalcy after the airing of the investigative piece by Anas Aremayaw Anas’ which uncovered massive illegalities at the FA.
The Normalisation Committee are tasked to review the GFA Statutes, and ensure elections for the Executive Committee and Presidency of the Association and also do a forensic audit of the GFA accounts.
According to the Black Meteors assistant coach, the committee should speed-up their work to prevent unnecessary pressure but urged everybody to give them ample time to complete their task.
“I entreat everyone to be patient with the Normalisation Committee. The work is a difficult task and it will take some time for the committee to complete it. I believe the six months it too short". He told GraphicSports
“Ghana football went bad so the committee needs more time to be able to address the issues and make things better.”
“I entreat them (Normalisation Committee) to work faster to avoid being pressured by the public, which may cause them to lose focus in their line of work”.
The specified period of time during which the Normalization Committee shall perform its functions shall expire on 31 March 2019.
