” However, in view of the upcoming GFA elections, FIFA has extended the Normalization Committee’s mandate up to November 17, 2019 to enable it complete the process of electing a new President and Executive Committee”, the statement continued.
The NC, made of four members, led by Dr. Kofi Amoah, was appointed in August last year to undertake the day to day activities of the GFA, overseeing the running of football in the country till a new leadership is elected to assume office permanently.
