GFA Chairman, Dr N. Nyaho-Tamakloe, is due back home on Friday from the Black Meteors camp at the Athens Olympics.

Black Meteors sources at the Athens Olympics told the Graphic yesterday that the FA Chairman returns just in time to see to some pressing issues of football at the home front, although “he had constantly been in touch with the administration from Athens”.

Dr Nyaho-Tamakloe's return, will immediately restore administrative structures at the GFA in accordance with the statutes of the association.His absence and the absence of his vice, Kofi Nyantakyi, a member of the FA, Fred Pappoe, and the General Secretary, Kofi Nsiah, have virtually grounded the administrative machinery of the FA to a halt.

According to the GFA regulation, three management members including either the chairman or the vice can take decisions on matters relating to the game. Dr Aloysius Denkabe and Dr Kofi Amoah were the only management members at home at press time yesterday.

On the whereabouts of the GFA General Secretary, Kofi Nsiah, sources say he left Greece for Ghana some five days ago but at the time of filing this report he had not been sighted anywhere near the FA Secretariat. Kofi Nsiah, who is also the chairman of the Media and Public Relations Committee of the FA, is expected to be in town early enough to preside over the maiden meeting of the committee on Friday at 6 p.m.

Meanwhile, the GFA Vice Chairman, Mr Kofi Nyantakyi, has denied that the secretariat neglected obligations regarding the court case involving the Division One League.

He told the Graphic in a distant call from the United Kingdom yesterday that he was personally involved in the case, and that at the time of his travel the case was being handled by the FA's legal team.

Mr Nyantakyi said although the management was away, it was constantly monitoring events back home.

He was reacting to yesterday's story in the Graphic which lamented the desertion of the GFA by four of the six management members of the nation's football controlling body.
