Staff of the Ghana Football Association are set to resume work after staying at home for the past three months due to an impasse between the government and the association.
The fate of the workers of the FA has been in the balance amid fears of losing their jobs in the wake of the long-standing stalemate.
However they could return to work by Monday as FIFA’s Normalisation Committee to bring Ghana Football back to its footing takes over today.
According to FIFA the committee’s task will be the following;
-To run the GFA’s daily affairs and cooperate with the special task force once it has been set up by FIFA, CAF and the Government of Ghana;
- To review the GFA statutes to ensure compliance with the requirements of FIFA and CAF, particularly art. 15 of the FIFA Statutes, and;
- Once the GFA statutes meet the requirements of FIFA and CAF, to organise and conduct elections of a GFA executive committee on the basis of the revised GFA statutes.
It's a massive relief for several of these staff who are largely committed workers of the embattled Ghana Football Association.
