Government of Ghana has dissolved the five-member interim committee formed to restructure football in the country after government decided to dissolve the GFA following the investigative piece by Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
The Ministry of Youth and Sports met FIFA delegates led by Veron Mosengo-Omba on Friday and, following extensive discussion with the World governing body, government decided emphatically to dissolve the interim committee due to the informal process it was named.
The committee formed by government comprised of, Dr. Kofi Amoah (Chairman), ex-footballers Abedi Pele and Rev. Osei Kofi, Lawyer and former Sports Journalist Eva Okyere and GHALCA Boss Kudjoe Fianoo.
“We had a fruitful discussion with FIFA and as things stands now there is no IMC,” deputy Attorney General, Godfred Odame on Joy FM’s Newsfile. “The IMC was not properly inaugurated and so as we speak it can’t work.”
“A proper one will be formed and inaugurated with their clear mandate made known. FIFA does not recognize the GFA as we speak”.
Ghana Football Association (GFA) was hit with bribery and conrruption scandals early this month, by investigative journalist Anas Armeyaw Anas which caught several officials and referees camera receiving cash gifts including the former GFA president Kwesi Nyantekyi.
