A FIFA task force has on Thursday, 13 September 2018, announced a normalisation committee to run Ghana football in the interim.

The task force was led by CAF first vice president, Amaju Pinnik.

Dr Kofi Amoah was named as chairperson of a four-person normalisation committee.

The committee replaces the Ghana Football Association’s Executive Committee.

Former Airtel CEO Lucy Quist, ex-Kotoko Board Member Kofi Dua-Adonteng, and Naa Odofoley Nortey, a board member of the Attorney General's department complete the list of members of the committee.

The Committee's duties are:

1. To run the GFA’s daily affairs and co-operate with the task force once it has been set up by Fifa, Caf and the Government of Ghana;

2. To review the GFA Statuses to ensure compliance with the requirements of Fifa and Caf particularly article 15 of the Fifa Statutes;

3. Once the GFA Statutes meets the requirements of Fifa and Caf, this Normalisation Committee will organise and conduct the elections of the GFA Executive Committee on the basis of the revised GFA Statutes.

Football in the country came to a halt in June this year after government applied to an Accra High Court to dissolve the local football governing body claiming the entire football structure was engaged in corruption following an investigative documentary by ace journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, which uncovered massive rot in Ghana football.

The exposé led to the resignation of Ghana FA President Kwesi Nyantakyi, who was captured on tape receiving an alleged $65,000 'gift' to agree a sponsorship deal with supposed investors – something he is contesting in court – claiming it was a refund of his expenses.

He resigned on Friday, 8 June 2018, after FIFA handed him a 90-day provisional ban from all footballing activities.

Over 80 referees and football officials were involved in the bribery scandal.
