FIFA petitioned over MoYS interference

A former FA Executive Committee member, Mr Kojo Yankah, has reported to FIFA a move by the Ministry of Youth and Sports (MoYS) to organise the Special Competition for clubs in the country.

The move, according to Mr Yankah, was unacceptable and deemed it as unnecessary interference from the state agency.

He confirmed on Accra based Asempa FM’s show yesterday that FIFA has received the letter.

In his view, the Ministry’s decision to bypass the Normalisation Committee to organise competition for local clubs was “unconstitutional and unwarranted”

While refusing to give details on the content of the petition, the outspoken football administrator confirmed receiving acknowledgement from the world governing body.

“They are destroying our football and we’ll not sit down and allow that to happen,” he said on Asempa FM’s Ultimate Morning show yesterday.

“Where in the world does a Ministry organise competition for clubs? I have written to FIFA and copied the FA. FIFA has acknowledged receipt of my letter.

Mr Yankah’s action follows MoYS set-up of a seven member committee chaired by Deputy Sports Minister, Mr Perry Okudzeto to resolve outstanding issues of regulations, financial package and the management of the competition.

That is believed to have stirred anger within the ranks of the Normalisation Committee that views the setting up of the committee as interference from MoYS in their work.

The latest decision is a massive slap on the competence of the four-member committee, who have been unable to reach an agreement with clubs over the competition. –Ghanasoccernet
