Normalization Committee seeks another extension of mandate from FIFA

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalization Committee has reportedly written to FIFA requesting for another extension of time to complete their mandate.

The interim body was handed a six-month extension by FIFA which is expected to end on September 30 after their initial mandate expired in March.

When contacted the spokesperson of the committee, Dan Kwaku Yeboah for comments, he said he could neither deny or confirm this latest development.

The four-member committee led by president Dr Kofi Amoah, was appointed in August, last year to run the day-to-day activities of the sport in the country following Ghana FA’s dissolution due to corrupt practices.

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.
