Immediate past president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) now FIFA Executive Council Member Amaju Melvin Pinnick is expected to be in Ghana’s Elective Congress billed for next week.
The Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) appointed a strong delegation for the 2023 Elective Congress of the Ghana Football Association to be held on Thursday, October 5, 2023 at Tamale.
The FIFA Delegation is made up of Gelson Fernandes, Director, FIFA Member Associations Africa, Silmara Sousa, Development Program Coordinator, FIFA Member Associations Africa and Ahmed Harraz, Senior MA Governance Services Manager, FIFA MA Governance.
The FIFA Delegation which has been providing assistance to the GFA Elections Committee will have final engagements with the GFA Elections Committee while in Ghana before the Congress.
It must be noted that once an Association comes out of normalisation period, the FIFA Member Association Division and the FIFA MA Governance work together with the structures to ensure the progress and growth of the Association and to avoid a return to FIFA sanctions.
FIFA Executive Council Member Amaju Melvin Pinnick will also be arriving in Ghana in the coming week as the Ghana Football prepares for its elective Congress in the Northern Regional capital of Tamale.
Meanwhile, CAF and WAFU B have also indicated that they will be sending dignitaries to ensure a successful GFA Congress on October 5, 2023.
