July 10 – The liaison team formed by FIFA and the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to secure a road map for the future of Ghanaian football in the wake of the incriminating BBC documentary that exposed widespread corruption is to pay the outstanding salaries to Ghana Football Association employees according to local reports.
The national federation has not functioned since June 8 when it was dissolved, with the fate of its staff in the balance, following the expose which forced the federation’s president and the second most powerful man in African football, Kwesi Nyantakyi, to resign from all his posts.
“For football to be able to sustain its unique place in the global arena of sports, it’s required that the game is organised, managed and administered within the culture and practice of transparency that also abides by the highest standards of ethical conduct,” a press release stated.
Oddly, however, FIFA has not yet sanctioned Ghana even though the action taken by the country’s authorities would appear to breach rules over government interference in the affairs of the federation.
