Ghanaian clubs have expressed concerns about date and venue for the upcoming Ghana Football Association (GFA) Congress slated for later this month.
More than 60 Ghanaian clubs have signed a petition seeking to stop the GFA with regards to the upcoming Congress set to be held on August 27 virtually.
The GFA had earlier inform clubs that it has fixed the 26th ordinary session of Congress for Thursday, August 27, 2020.
According to the country’s governing body, in view of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant limitations imposed under the Imposition of Restrictions Act, 2020 (Act 1012) on public gatherings, the meeting cannot be held the usual way, where Congressmen and women gather at a venue for their deliberations and decision making, hence the meeting will be done virtually.
However, some clubs have signed a petition to oppose the move by the GFA stating that with the ease of restrictions by President Akufo-Addo in its latest address, Congress should be done the usual way.
In a letter signed by Medeama SC President Moses Armah, it said despite the advantages of hold Congress virtually, technology has its own disadvantages which outweighs the benefits.
