Chairman of the GFA Normalization Committee, Dr Kofi Amoah has squashed claims that his Committee consult banned Kwesi Nyantakyi in decision making.

Few days ago, Executive Committee Member of the then Ghana Football Association, Wilfred Osei Kweku Palmer revealed that embattled Kwesi Nyantakyi is being consulted by Normalization Committee in their decision making.

Kwesi Nyantakyi's led administration was dissolved after he was exposed in the 'Number 12' video by Anas Aremyaw Anas in June last year.

The documentary which collapsed the foundation of Ghana football caught prominent football administrators and match officials engaging in corruption activities in their line of duties.

After the airing of the documentary, the country's football governing body was disbanded which eventually led to the institution of the Normalization Committee to replace the Executive Committee and run the day to day football activities in the country.

After Anas Aremeyaw Anas petitioned, FIFA subsequently slapped Kwesi Nyantakyi with a lifetime ban with a heavy fine after months of investigations.

But according to the Tema Youth financier, the former FIFA Executive Council member, Nyantakyi, is always approached by the Normalization Committee to seek information regarding the repatriation of football in the country.

However, Dr Kofi Amoah who serves as the chairman of the Normalization Committee in an interview on Atinka FM has described Palmer's claims as cooked and naked story.

"Few days ago I read an article that every decision we take, we consult Nyantakyi. So if you are a Ghanaian and you cook up such stories, how does your conscience treat you when you sleep. Where is their proof. It is just a manufactured story and naked story".

The Normalization Committee are expected to vacate office on March 31 2019.

However, the GFA Normalization Committee have named six adhoc committees to aid steer their mandate.
