- FIFA has agreed with the government of Ghana to put in place interim measures to allow for the continuation of football in Ghana
- This is among the resolutions of its meeting with a delegation from the world football governing body as a result of the current crisis in Ghana football
Government officials held a fruitful meeting with the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) in Accra on Friday, June 22, 2018.
The meeting was initially supposed to involve the Ministry of Youth and Sports and members of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
However, it was postponed and later came off between FIFA and government officials without any FA member representing.
The contingent representing government were Godfred Yeboah Dame, Samuel Abu Jinapor, Hon Isaac Asiamah, Frank Quist and Mustapha Hamid.
FIFA also sent a three-man delegation, led by FIFA Director for Africa Veron Mosengo-Omba, to discuss how best reforms could be made to football in Ghana.
A joint statement, signed by Veron Mosengo-Omba, FIFA director for Africa and the Caribbean and the Minister of Information, Dr Mustapha Hamid, described the meeting as “fruitful”.
The statement said FIFA accepts and agree to the Ghana Govt's application of its national laws "against criminal conduct and illegality".
It added that interim measures will be put in place to allow the continuation of football in the country.

Meanwhile, a Deputy Attorney General, Godfred Dame on Joy FM said the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) does not recognize the current football association.
Mr. Dame insists the football governing body is so unhappy with the current state of the FA that the three-man delegation sent to Ghana to help fix Ghana football did not even bother to have the embattled FA members take part in their meeting with government.
