We Will Be Going For Congress Soon – Dr. Kofi Amoah

Chairman for the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalization Committee, Dr. Kofi Amoah has indicated that the association will be going for its congress very soon to have a look at the reviewed and improved statutes of the association.

One of the main mandates assigned to the committee by FIFA is to review the statutes of the GFA and make any change they feel could improve the running of football in the country.

Whiles there has been pressure on Dr. Amoah and his charges to fast-track the progress, they failed to really make an improvement on that front event after staying in the office after 6 months.

Speaking on Metro TV yesterday, however, Dr. Kofi Amoah has disclosed that the bulk of the work as far as reviewing and improving the statutes is concerned has been completed and they will be going for Congress very soon.

What is left now is for them to apply some finishing touches before it will be sent to FIFA for approval. Once that is done, they will bring it back home for the GFA to hold its congress in a bid for its members to give their approval to the new regulations.

“The FIFA mandate is supposed to end September 31st this year. We are trying to finish before then because I think we should be able to finish before then because the big job that we had to do, was really looking at the statutes and coming up with new statutes”

“We are done with the bulk. But now the Congress of the Ghana football can take a look at it and have a say. FIFA also has to look at it and make sure that it agrees with FIFA’s regulations. And so once we are finished with the FIFA angle, then we will bring it home and do the Ghana angle”, Dr. Amoah said.

He further assured that the committee is committed to working with the football people to improve the running of the game in the country.
