The Ghana Football Association has asked the confederation of Africa Football to allow them two weeks to take firm decision on the future of Ghana’s domestic competitions.
CAF had written to all member Associations to provide their plans and programs during the COVID-19 pandemic era to allow the continental body to plan its future competitions.
Addressing the response of the FA to CAF, communication director Henry Asante Twum told Asempa FM, the FA will not take any final decision without consulting the relevant stakeholders including Government of Ghana.
“After our meeting with the clubs, we informed them that every decision of the FA will be in consultation with the members, we have given CAF enough information as regards to the situation in Ghana, and the Association on its own cannot take decisions without adhering to the directives from Government”.
Mr Asante twum maintained that, the Ghana FA will firm up their decision on the future of the Ghanaian domestic competitions in two weeks when the Government of Ghana had also spoken on the situation of Ghana.
He stressed that the Ghana FA suspended all of its domestic competitions because of directives from FIFA, CAF and the government of Ghana, and will at all times consult these bodies before any move is made.
“We closed down the FA headquarters, and suspended all Football activities in this country becuase FIFA, CAF and Government of Ghana had correspondence with the FA, and there has never been a moment where the FA has taken any decision without consulting these bodies, the Exco and the President of the FA touches base with the ministry of Health on a daily Basis.”
Henry Asante further noted that the Medical committee of the FA has at all times advised that FA on the way forward, and offers educational materials to be shared with the members of the FA.
