Pappoe – Believes the Normalisation C’ttee will need more time for the reforms

FORMER Vice-President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Fred Pappoe, has said that the Normalisation Committee has too much on their hands and may struggle to complete their work within the six-month mandate given to them by FIFA.

The Ghana Premier League was suspended indefinitely after the airing of the investigative piece by journalist Anas Armeyaw Anas where some officials were captured on video engaged in corrupt practices.

FIFA and government resorted to the constitution of the Normalisatiion Committee to govern Ghana football for six months until the election of a new administration.

However, according to Pappoe, who is also a board member of Accra Great Olympics, the committee may need more than the stipulated months to complete their work due to the workload on their hands.

“Looking at the things to be done at the GFA such as the Black Stars, Ghana Premier League, Women Football, financing, Marketing, adjudicating bodies and many others, I wonder if they will be able to finish the mandate given to them within six months, Fred Pappoe told Accra based radio station Kasapa FM, yesterday.

“It wouldn’t be out of place to call for an extension but let’s wait till they exhaust the stipulated time given them. They need a lot of patience for now and we don’t have to pressure them too.

The former chairman of the Black Stars Management Committee also indicated it was a fruitful and successful meeting held between the clubs and the Normalisation Committee last Friday.

“I hope the Normalisation Committee took a lot of positives from the meeting we had on Friday.”
