Chairman of the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA), Cudjoe Fianoo, has step down from the five-member interim Committee formed by the government to preside over Ghana Football.

The government last week announced a 5-member interim Committee that will lead the administration of Ghana Football as they take steps to dissolved the GFA.

The members of the Committee were Dr Kofi Amoah, Abedi Pele, Eva Okyere, Rev. Osei Kofi and Cudjoe Fianoo.

Fianoo opted out of the committee to run Ghana football because going along with government’s plans to freeze all football activities would hurt the league clubs he represented as GHALCA chairman.
“The highest office of the land gave me an appointment but I need to weigh the pros and cons of the appointment in relation to my position as GHALCA chairman. Just from a cursory look, I could see that there a level of conflict", he explained.

He said "if the government had come to GHALCA for us pick a member to join the committee or the GHALCA general assembly had asked me to represent them on that committee, I would not have any problem. For now, I have assured my members of good leadership hence my decision not to serve on the committee”.

The five-member Committee will together with the Sports Minister will travel to Switzerland to hold talks with FIFA as the government continue their bid to dissolve the GFA.
