A joint Fifa/Caf mission responsible for the setting up of the Normalization Committee for the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has arrived in the country.

The 3-member task force touched down in Accra on Tuesday afternoon.

Luca Nicola, Fifa’s Manager of Member Association, joined colleague Veron Mosengo-Omba, the Director of Member Associations and Development for Africa and the Caribbean on the trip to Accra while Caf first vice-president and leader of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick will represent Caf on the mission.

Ghana’s Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah has said the trio will from Wednesday, September 12 begin use of his office for their work.

The Fifa/Caf mission could spend at least three days in the country during which they will review the individuals proposed by the government through eligibility interviews before finalizing the composition of the Committee.

The Normalization Committee for the GFA is expected to have 5 or 7 members. Its core duties – which according to Fifa – should not exceed the end of March 2019 – will be to:

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;

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

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