Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) has advised the Normalisation Committee (NC) of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to put finishing touches to the revised statutes after Thursday’s meeting in Paris.
The meeting held a day after Gianni Infantino’s endorsement for a second term at the 69th FIFA Congress, discussed the various aspects of the new statutes.
A source close to the Normalisation Committee who briefed Graphic Sports Online said FIFA was largely in agreement with the work so far done by the NC.
“The meeting went well. It’s work in progress. We discussed the various aspects. We have just some small issues left to clean up,” the source said.
That was the first time the two parties met over the updated GFA statutes since the unveiling of the NC by FIFA last September.
The meeting was attended by the three NC members, President Dr Kofi Amoah, Naa Odofoley Nortey and Samuel Osei Kuffour.
The three attended Wednesday’s FIFA Congress and used the opportunity to meet FIFA over the newly-drafted statutes.
The NC’s next task is to organise the GFA elections after FIFA had endorsed the new statutes.
