Accra, Sept 13, GNA –
Mr Luca Nicola, the head of governance at Federation of International Football
Associations (FIFA), has revealed that the newly appointed members of the
Normalisation Committee to restructure Ghana football will go under a FIFA eligibility
test.

Four members were
named by a FIFA/CAF task force in Accra on Thursday, September 13, as members
of a Normalisation Committee to “run the daily affairs of the GFA” until such time
where the GFA is brought to normalcy.

The Committee would be
led by business mogul Dr Kofi Amoah, with former Managing Director of Airtel
Ghana Lucy Quist as the Vice president of the Committee.

Others members are
Lawyer Duah Adonteng (Former Kotoko Board member) and Naa Odofoley Nortey (a
Board member of the Attorney General’s Department – Legal Aid Scheme).

Additional member(s),
are however expected to join the Committee, but that would be after a
consultative meeting by the FIFA/CAF task force and the Government of Ghana.

Mr. Nicola, at the
press briefing disclosed that, the members on the Committee would begin their
task with immediate effect, but were subject to conditional requirements before
they could be confirmed.

 “The four members would assume their functions
with immediate effect, however we need to remind you that their final
confirmation remains conditional upon the successful completion of an
Eligibility Check, that would be carried out by the FIFA review Committee.

“That’s an
independent Committee within FIFA and this Eligibility Check will be carried
out in accordance with the FIFA governance regulations,” Mr Nicola noted.

“We would also like to
stress that for the duration of the Normalisation Committee’s mandate, FIFA
retains and reserves its rights to revoke the mandate of one or several of the
members of the Normalisation Committee and or to nominate additional persons
obviously such a move would have to be motivated by due reasons.”
