“For me, I have no doubt in Dr. Kofi Amoah. I have worked with him before when he was the Chairman of the CAN 2008 board and looking at the work he has so far done with liaison committee, I think he can lead the team to deliver. Lucy Quist, I do not know her much but I learnt she is a marketer, I believe she will help us secure sponsorship for the league and various national teams”.
“Lawyer Duah Adonten is quite known in the football fraternity, he is very affable, and he is experienced. Naa Odofoley Nortey is the rep from the Attorney General’s office. I agree she should be there because of the amendment which has to be done.”
FIFA/CAF delegation stated that other names will be added to the names mentioned. The normalization committee is expected to amend certain Articles of the GFA constitution, Conduct election for the Executive committee and President of the Association and also to conduct a forensic Audit on the accounts of Ghana Football Association.
