Normalization Committee set to handover power

The Normalisation Committee of the Ghana Football Association has unveiled the deadlines leading to the handing over of power to a new GFA Executive Committee.

The road map which details the program for the review of the new Ghana FA statutes, election of Constituent bodies, election of a new GFA Board Chairman, playing of a special commemorative match, dubbed Normalisation Committee Super Cup, and a Presidential Cup.

The map which was drafted on May 28, has the presentation of a draft amended Statutes which was sent to FIFA on April 29.

It has July 24 as the day of the announcement of election committee, with congress scheduled for July 31.

The presidential election, the fourth in the democratic history of the country’s football remains unprecedented on many fronts following the tearing down of the Kwesi Nyantakyi-led administration by widespread allegation of corruption.

The investigative piece titled Number 12 which was carried out by ace journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, captured several grim corrupt activities by referees, and some football administrators.

In the aftermath of the scandal, the premises of the FA was declared a crime scene by local police, the FA executive council was overhauled, while all competitive local football competitions and matches remain suspended.

The investigation has affected more than Nyantakyi as some other local football administrators captured in the video have resigned while several indicted referees across Africa have received bans ranging from short-term to life.
