"We've given ourselves till the end of June. As an FA, we are dialoguing, consulting, taking views and exploring every single avenue or option which is available to us" He Otec FM.

The GFA medical team led by Dr. Baba Adam met the Gov't medical advising team on Thursday, May 21, 2020 to deliberate on the future of the football season under COVID-19.
