Prof. Joshua Alabi proposes 'drastic' reforms to revolutionise Ghana football

Professor Joshua Alabi, a former Vice Chancellor of UPSA, who happens to be a former Manager of the Black Stars, has presented a list of recommendations to the football authorities as solutions to the current brouhaha surrounding Ghana football.

The respected former University don is proposing a list of changes that must be factored into a new constitution for the management of football. His recommendations include an independent board for the management of the premier league with superior powers, checks and balances between the board and the FA, and a time bound resolution of all disputes which may arise in football.

"Congress of the GFA which is a meeting of all stakeholders must admit to shortcomings inherent in the current constitution, and table proposals to correct them. A new constitution which encourages checks and balances, gives autonomy to the PLB, fast tracks resolution of disputes within hours, and protects our continental or international representatives is the way to go," he stated.

Prof Alabi in a statement issued Tuesday recounts his time as one of the five Executive Members of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and also as the General Secretary of GHALCA and on the strength of that, proffers drastic reforms which will revolutionise the management of football in the country.
