Normalisation C’ttee seeks CAF deadline extension
The Normalisation Committee (NC) of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has appealed to the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) to extend its deadline for the submission of names of Ghanaian clubs for 2019 continental competitions.
Dan Kwaku Yeboah, for the committee, said in an interview that the Kofi Amoah-led group would be meeting CAF executive members during their visit to Ghana this week to firm up plans for the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations.
“Due to our current situation, we have written to CAF to find an amicable solution to the problem but we are yet to receive a response from them.
"In view of the fact that the tournament will be hosted in Ghana, all the executive members of CAF would be in Ghana this week, so we would meet them to discuss the issue," he added.
According to Yeboah, the Normalisation Committee would also meet all the club owners by the close of the week to decide on which teams to represent Ghana in the African clubs competitions.
The Ghana Premier League was halted after the first round when an expose on bribery and corruption was premiered at the Accra International Conference Centre, exposing high-ranking members of the Ghana Football Association engaging in alleged corrupt practices, as well as some referees and match officials.
