Gvt sets up Interim Committee to ‘Manage Football’

Government has set up an Interim Management Committee (IMC) to oversee the administration of football and other related matters in the country. [AdToAppearHere]

In a release signed by the Minister for Information and Spokesperson for the Presidency Mustapha Abdul-Hamid, it says the decision is due to an injunction placed on the Ghana Football Association (GFA) by a high court.

The injunction restrains the members, directors and officials of the GFA from exercising their duties. [AdToAppearHere]

The five-member Interim committee is made up of: Dr. Kofi Amoah (Chairperson), Mr. Cudjoe Fianoo (Member/Secretary), Mr. Abedi Pele (Member), Rev. Osei Kofi (Member), and Ms. Eva Okyere (Member).

According to the release Mr. Dan Kweku Yeboah will serve as the committee’s spokesperson.

”Government will engage with FIFA and CAF as promised in the government statement of 7th June, 2018 to discuss current developments in Ghanaian football administration and to chart the way forward,” the release indicated.

”Government calls on the Ghanaian people to exercise restraint as it takes steps to sanitise the situation and restore normalcy to football in Ghana,” it added.
