Normalization Committee seeks extension of mandate

- The interim body running football in Ghana is seeking an extension of time to complete their work

- Spokesperson of the committee, Dan Kwaku Yeboah failed to confirm or deny the rumour that the Normalisation Committee wants FIFA to extend their mandate again

- The four-member committee led by president Dr Kofi Amoah, was appointed in August 2018

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalization Committee reportedly wants their mandate extended after their current tenure runs out.

The Committee assumed the management of Ghana football following the chaotic turnout in the wake of the Anas exposé.

They were initially expected to complete their mandate in March, but their term was extended by FIFA following delays in implementing certain things at the FA.

However, the Committee was handed a six-month extension by FIFA which is expected to come to an end on September 30.

The NC‘s core tasks are to:

1. run the GFA’s daily affairs. 

2. 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. 

3. organize and conduct elections of a GFA executive committee on the basis of the revised GFA statutes.

But reports circulating in the local media suggest the NC have written to FIFA to demand another extension of their mandate.
