Author: Samuel Amoesi
Moving on: Lucy Quist

The vice president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalisation Committee, Lucy Quist, has resigned from the group.

The former Airtel Ghana boss announced her Facebook page on Friday, her decision to quit her eight-month role as vice president of the FA caretaker body.

She cited "personal reasons" for her decision to quit her role, adding that it  was time to move onto a new phase of her life.

"I would like to express my profound gratitude to my colleagues on the Normalisation Committee, FIFA, the State and people of Ghana for the opportunity to serve in the capacity of the Vice President of the NC for the last 8 months since inauguration in September 2018. For personal reasons, it is now time for me to leave the committee.

"The continued transformation of football in Ghana will require the support of everyone passionate about the game. I pray that all stakeholders will put their differences aside and focus on achieving the greater vision of football that not only produces great players for Ghana but by extension makes a positive impact on our economic fortunes," she wrote.

Her resignation comes just weeks after another member of the committee,  Kofi Dua-Adonten, was replaced by former Ghana international, Samuel Osei Kuffour, when football's world governing body FIFA extended the Normalisation Committee's mandate by a further six months to enable it complete its task to make reforms to the GFA Statutes, organise election for the next GFA Executive Committee and its president, as well as the day-to-day management of the FA.
