GFA officials Alex Asante and Oti Akenteng to meet FIFA

Ghana Football Association General Secretary Alex Asante together with Technical Director Francis Oti Akenteng have joined government’s delegation to meet FIFA in Zurich.

The two FA officials were asked to join the team as representatives for the Football Association.

Sports Minister Hon. Isaac Asiamah together with other four government officials left Ghana to meet FIFA on Wednesday.

Alex Asante and Oti Akenteng also left the country on Thursday night.

Government had earlier prevented a four-man delegation led by Lawyer Kweku Eyiah who were handpicked by FIFA to travel to Zurich as they believed it could have breached the law following a court injunction on the Ghana Football Association.

Despite the arrival of the government officials in Zurich, FIFA deemed it necessary to still involve the FA in the decision making hence handing invitations to the two (Alex Asante and Oti Akenteng).

The team will discuss with FIFA the way forward for Ghana Football after the latest crises which has bedeviled the Sport.
