August 14 – The Normalisation Committee running football in Ghana has set a new date for an Extra-Ordinary Congress, moving it from August 26 to September 5.
A year ago, Ghana became the latest country to see its footballing affairs come under the temporary control of FIFA following the demise of Ghana FA boss and FIFA Council member Kwesi Nyantakyi who became embroiled in a bribery scandal.
At first the authorities attempted to dissolve the national federation but backed down after FFIA decided to take over with the goal of organising elections of a GFA executive committee on the basis of revised GFA statutes.
A statement by FIFA said that the normalisation Committee “in its quest to fully comply with relevant provisions of the Statutes of the GFA without ambiguity, has rescheduled the Extra Ordinary Congress of the GFA from Wednesday August 19 to Thursday September 5, 2019.”
“The rescheduling clears any ambiguity over interpretation of relevant provisions of the GFA Statutes by stakeholders, regarding the number of days required for Extra Ordinary Congress as well as the agenda for the Extraordinary Congress as earlier communicated.”
