The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has asked for more time to decide whether to resume or discontinue football competitions in the country this season.
This comes in the wake of a request by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to member associations to furnish it with their respective decisions concerning the season which has been disrupted by the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic.
Communications director of the GFA, Henry Asante Twum in an interview with Accra-based Asempa FM confirmed that the FA following a meeting with its members has given them two weeks for a response on the issue.
“After our meeting with the clubs, we informed them that every decision of the FA will be in consultation with the members, we have given CAF enough information as regards to the situation in Ghana, and the Association on its own cannot take decisions without adhering to the directives from Government”.
He explained that the GFA suspended its activities based on directives from FIFA, CAF and the Ghana government so the fate so the local competitions cannot be decided without recourse to all these bodies.
“We closed down the FA headquarters, and suspended all Football activities in this country because FIFA, CAF and Government of Ghana had correspondence with the FA, and there has never been a moment where the FA has taken any decision without consulting these bodies, the Exco and the President of the FA touch base with the ministry of Health on a daily basis.”
Henry Asante Twum further reiterated that the future of the local game this season will be decided in two weeks when the government of Ghana has addressed the current situation in Ghana.
