FIFA letter to GFA
Dear Mr Kweku, Mr Nduom,
I hope that you are well? Due to the Ghanaian government’s insistence that the court injunction against Ghana FA is still valid, we have had to withdraw your invitations to the meeting in Zurich.
We understand that your participation in the meeting would be against the relevant Ghanaian laws and you might personally face certain sanctions. As such, we advise you not to travel to Zurich.
A letter has been sent to the Ghanaian government (as attached) confirming that only FIFA and the Ghanaian government will participate in the meetings in Zurich. A new date of Friday 29 June 2018 has been set for the meeting.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused and assure you of our commitment to resolving the current issues in Ghanaian football. Best regards Solomon Solomon MUDEGE Senior Development Manager CAF & Caribbean Region Subdivision Member Associations Division.
