Former Ghanaian international, Solar Ayew has warned FIFA not to extend the mandate of Ghana's Normalization Committee beyond their March 31 deadline.

The interim body has come under mounting pressure amid claims of snail pace of work, which continues to threaten local football in the West African nation.

The four-member committee appears to have veered off their mandate and will seek for an extension even though Dr Kofi Amoah has debunked reports that the Normalization Committee has written to FIFA for an extension.

They appear to be in the wonderland as the clock ticks with a deadline of March 31, 2019, looming.

Now, most Ghanaian are losing patience with the Normalization Committee and have vowed to fight any deliberate attempt to seek an extension.

However, the former Black Meteors player believes the Dr Kofi Amoah led administration has nothing to offer Ghana football and FIFA must not think of extending their mandate else Ghana Football will still be in agony.

"I can't say so far so good or bad but let us wait and see what the NC can do. But from experience, I can't say they are on the right path", he told Kumasi-based New Mercury FM.

"I don't think the Normalization Committee's mandate should be extended else we will suffer", he ended.

Nonetheless, critics have continuously claimed that the six-month mandate won't be enough to erase the mess created by the past administration.

But others have resisted attempts to paint a gloomy picture of Ghanaian football after the investigative piece by controversial journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas on June 6.

The Normalization Committee was appointed by FIFA in August 2018 to run the day-to-day activities of the sport in the country following Ghana FA's dissolution in June due to corrupt practices.
