Government took the steps to dissolve the Ghana Football Association after the premiering of the Anas Aremeyaw Anas's 'Number 12' video that has uncovered the widespread of corruption in football in the country.
however, the government discontinued its process of seeking to liquidate the Ghana FA after reaching an agreement with FIFA to have the Normalization Committee formed.
This Normalization Committee will take over the executive arm of football administration, replacing the Executive Committee of the Ghana FA.
Okraku says he is ready to offer any form of support required to ensure the successful administration of football with the Normalization Committee.
“I cannot say that I am ignorant of good football management skills, good techniques and strategies,” he told Dreams TV.
“So when the time comes, I’m sure we will contribute our bit no matter how little it is.
“I am an investor in the sport and therefore it is important that I play a role in ensuring that football becomes beneficial for all of us.”
The Normalization Committee is expected to be announced on Wednesday.
Acting CAF Vice-President Amaju Pinnick is leading a FIFA delegation to Ghana on Tuesday to announce the appointment of the Normalization Committee.
The normalisation committee’s mandate includes the following tasks:
- To run the GFA’s daily affairs and cooperate with the special task force once it has been set up by FIFA, CAF and the Government of Ghana;
- To review the GFA statutes to ensure compliance with the requirements of FIFA and CAF, particularly art. 15 of the FIFA Statutes, and;
- Once the GFA statutes meet the requirements of FIFA and CAF, to organise and conduct elections of a GFA executive committee on the basis of the revised GFA statutes.
