Government and FIFA have agreed to collaborate to restore the integrity of football administration in the country following the corruption scandal that hit the Ghana Football Association.
A statement released Tuesday, July 4, 2018, by the Sports Ministry, revealed that a government delegation, led by Sports Minister, Isaac Asiamah, met with officials of the world football management body in Zurich, Switzerland, to adopt interim measures for the administration of football in Ghana.
The parties also agreed that, pending the institution of definite interim measures for the administration of football in the country, Dr Kofi Amoah and Coach Oti Akenteng, have been mandated to constitute a Liaison Team with FIFA and CAF for football affairs in Ghana.
Government started a process to the Ghana FA, following allegations of corruption by Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Government set up a five-member committee, to steer the affairs of Ghana Football, but there were fears that the move could breach FIFA rules.
FIFA then invited Ghana’s Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah over to Zurich, Switzerland to chart a new path for Ghana football.
