Accra, Sept. 17, GNA –
Mr. Jonathan Abbey Pobee, President of Neoplan Stars Football Club, says, he
has written to the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA), to
include Mr. Kwabena Yeboah, President of the Sports Writers Association of
Ghana (SWAG), on the newly formed Normalisation Committee, mandated to manage
the administration of football in Ghana.
According to Mr.
Pobee, the four-member normalization committee would need an experienced sports
personality to compliment their duties and believes, Mr Yeboah remains the
preferred choice considering his contribution to football.
important we get a media representation on the committee and I have written to
FIFA on this particular issue. I feel SWAG President, Mr. Yeboah, is a
qualified candidate to assume a position on the normalisation,” Pobee told
He noted that, the
media have played a crucial role in current happenings in Ghana football, and
disapproved opinions which are calling for the inclusion of “football
people” on the committee.
“The reason for
writing this communique is that, the media played a crucial role in exposing
the past GFA administration and it would be reasonable to get representation on
the normalisation committee, and their input will help the reform process.
“I don’t agree
with comments which seek to suggest the inclusion of “football
people” on the committee, because they have been part of this system, so I
don’t see any significant input from them.”
Meanwhile the Dr. Kofi
Amoah – led committee have commenced duties to return football to normality on
Monday, September 17, with their tenure set to expire in March next year.
