The Normalization Committee to run Ghana Football for the next six months has been announced Thursday at the Ghana Football Association secretariat.

The Committee will be led by Dr. Kofi Amoah, who was the CAF/FIFA liaison team head and will be deputised by former Airtel Chief Executive Officer Lucy Quist.

Other members of the committee are Lawyer Duah Adonten, a former Kotoko Board member with Naa Odofoley Nortey completing the list.

Alhaji MND Jawula, who was expected to be a part of the team, has been excluded following heavy criticisms from the general public.

A fifth member is expected to be included later after some consultations between FIFA and the Committee.

Fifa says it retains the right to remove/add any members of this Normalisation Committee. Monthly update reports will be sent to Fifa and CAF.

A forensic audit of the GFA accounts will be done.

FIFA member Amaju Pinnick of Nigeria and Victor Mosengo arrived in Accra on Tuesday to ensure the members of the committee meet the integrity standard set by the World Governing body.

The world football governing body, announced last month, that it will appoint a Normalisation Committee to run the affairs of the Ghana Football Association(GFA).

The decision was arrived at after a meeting between FIFA and Government of Ghana officials together with the head of the FIFA/CAF liaison team for the Ghana Football Association (GFA) concerning the situation of the GFA, and taking into consideration the subsequent withdrawal by Ghana authorities of the petition to liquidate the GFA.

The Normalisation Committee members will be tasked to;

  • To run the GFA’s daily affairs and cooperate with the special task force once it has been set up by FIFA, CAF and the Government of Ghana;
  • To review the GFA statutes to ensure compliance with the requirements of FIFA and CAF, particularly art. 15 of the FIFA Statutes, and;
  • Once the GFA statutes meet the requirements of FIFA and CAF, to organise and conduct elections of a GFA executive committee on the basis of the revised GFA statutes.

The specified period of time during which the normalisation committee shall perform its functions shall expire when all of the above-mentioned tasks have been properly fulfilled, but by no later than 31 March 2019.

All football activities in the country have been halted following the airing of Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ Number 12 documentary.
