Former Board Chairman of the National Division One League, Lawyer Ntow Fianko is calling on clubs to oppose the new date for Ghana Football Association’s 26th Ordinary Congress.
The GFA on Tuesday announced that they have rescheduled the date for its 26th Ordinary Congress to September.
In a letter signed by GFA General Secretary, Prosper Harrison Addo, said Congress will now take place on September 1 and it will be held at the GFA Technical Centre (Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence, Prampram).
The decision for the new date and venue comes as a result of the easing of restrictions on the number of people who can attend meetings by President Akufo-Addo in its lasted Covid-19 address on Sunday.
The Football Association had originally fix August 27 for its Congress via video conference.
However, the football administrator has indicated that the new date clashes with the day the Court of Arbitration for Sport will deliver its verdict on the case between Wilfred Osei Kwaku Palmer and the GFA.
“Can’t we get any other date apart from 1st September for the congress?. That date is a serious day because that is the day will know the fate of Ghana football. This was not the initial date communicated to clubs.
“What has changed for the Ghana FA to decide to have the congress on 1st September? The same date that is set for the CAS decision”, the renowned football lawyer told Happy FM in an interview today.
According to Lawyer Ntow Fianko, clubs must oppose the date and request for a new date from the GFA.
“The Ghana FA want people to be anxious and nervous at congress on that day ? They must come again. It is a wrong date in every aspect of our football.
“This won’t benefit anyone so the Ghana FA must change the date. Clubs must stand up and request for a new day. We must say no to 1st September for congress”, he added.
