Ghana government has formed a five-member Interim Management Committee led by Dr. Kofi Amoah to oversee the restructuring of Ghana Football

The other members include: Former Black Stars players Abedi Pele and Rev. Osei Kofi, GHALCA boss, Cudjoe Fianoo, Ms. Eva Okeyere and their spokesperson, Daniel Kwaku Yeboah of Peace FM.

This decision to form an interim team to oversee a reformation of Ghana football follows the announcement by government that it plans on using all the legal process available to dissolve the current Ghana Football Association.

Government’s resolve to literally dismantle the current structure of the GFA comes on the back of the explosive exposé done by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas which was premiered in Accra on June 6.

The exposé, which was done over a two-year span, captured several match officials receiving bribes to compromise Ghana Premiere League games. It also revealed the deep-seated rot and corruption at the FA when it comes to player selection into the various national teams, and how sponsorship deals for the league and national teams are dubiously negotiated.

The immediate task of the 5-member committee is to oversee the administration of football and other related activities in Ghana.
