We are disappointed in the government- GHALCA
The President for the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA), Kudjoe Fianoo, says his association is getting disappointed at the way the government is trying to resolve the current impasse involving Ghana football.
According to the former AshGold boss, government should allow or even consult football people including the club owners and administrators in their efforts to restructure the game.
Government has placed an injunction on all football-related activities which has prevented the Ghana Football Association and all it stakeholders from meeting to find a solution to the menace created after the exposé on corruption in Ghana Football.
Speaking on the issue with Accra based radio station Asempa FM, he said,
“In one breath we have been told there is an injunction and so we cannot have a congress and even to the extent that some FA officials invited by FIFA have been prevented from honouring their invitation by the government. The clubs are getting disappointed by the turn of events.
“The clubs were behind those who were called by FIFA to the second meeting to be held in Zurich with government’s delegation, which was a move to resolve the matter. So, they were not going there in their personal capacity but on behalf of the clubs.
“They should allow us to hold congress, since it is the highest decision body at the FA, so we can deliberate on the issues. At congress we can decide to let the current Executive Committee members step aside so we form an Interim Committee to take over”.
He also stated that, should there be a normalisation committee to be set up by FIFA, the clubs will be pushing for one of its members to be included on that committee.
“We will continue to find solution to the matter, but personally I am disappointed at the government because they don’t want to listen to us”, he added.
