We are determined to complete our mandate before September 30 – Normalization Committee reveals

Published on: 16 July 2019

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalization Committee (NC) has revealed that they are determined to complete their mandate before the stipulated deadline date of their second term.

The body was set up by the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) and the government of Ghana to reform the sport in the country after it was left crippled by an investigative film from ace journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

Having already failed to restore normalcy to the running of football in the country at the end of their first term, the Normalization Committee is now in their second term which is also expected to end on September 30, 2019.

In the past week, club owners and some stakeholders have expressed their fury over the slow pace of the NC towards seeing out the completion of their mandate and has even accused the body of writing to FIFA to seek another extension.

In a statement released today though, the GFA Normalization Committee has assured that they have no plans of seeking an extension but are rather focused on wrapping up their duties within the stipulated timeline of this term.

“The GFA-NC wishes to state unequivocally that, it is determined to wrap-up within the stipulated mandate as spelt out by the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA)”.

“The public is therefore urged to regard as false any contrary information, surrounding the GFA-NC supposed intent to further seek extension of its mandate”, the statement read.
