Member of the GFA Normalisation Committee Lawyer Naa Odofoley Nortey is set to head a five-member committee that will oversee the elections of the Ghana Football Association, according to reports in the local media.

Article 54 of the GFA statutes on the formation of the Elections Committee states:

“The Elections Committee is an Adhoc committee the body in charge of organizing and supervising the election process in accordance with the provisions of these Statutes and the Elections Regulations of GFA.

“The Elections Committee shall be made up of five (5) members, including at least one woman and a lawyer who shall be the Chairperson.”

Mrs Nortey is expected to chair the GFA election committee since she is the only female and a lawyer among the five members of the NC.

On Monday, the Normalisation Committee released a statement to deny reports that an Election Committee was going to be formed and headed by Rex Danquah.

However, the NC in a statement said, “Pursuant to Article 79.2 (Transitional provisions) of the newly adopted Statutes of the GFA, members of the Normalization Committee of the GFA shall act as the Elections Committee for the upcoming GFA presidential and executive council elections”.

Naa Odofoley Nortey is a legal practitioner who was born in Accra, Ghana. She is a Partner at Beyuo & Co, a position she has risen to due to hard work and selfless dedication to her work.
