Government is expecting a delegation from world football governing body, FIFA, and its continental organ, CAF, to hold further discussions towards reforms within the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

Reforms within the GFA have become necessary following an exposé by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas which captured some officials of the FA engaging in some corrupt practices.

Following the exposé, the government of Ghana decided to dissolve the GFA, a decision FIFA did not take kindly to.

The sport-governing body, therefore, warned Ghana of a possible ban from international tournaments if government goes ahead with the proposed dissolution.

The Government of Ghana later reached an agreement with FIFA to deal with the issues at the GFA together with the world football body.

It is on the back of this that a delegation is expected in Ghana to tackle these issues to ensure that the management of football activities return to normal in the country.

This delegation is expected to assess some names to be proposed by government as members of a Normalisation Committee to run affairs of the GFA.

Addressing the media in Accra on Wednesday, August 29, Minister of Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said a letter from FIFA to government regarding the processes indicated that the Committee, which will be set up, is expected to finish its work by March 31, 2019.
