Ghana have struck a deal with FIFA, to clean up football administration in the country.
The West African nation took the step to back away from controversial plans to dissolve its graft-ridden football federation.
Ghana’s Attorney-General had taken steps towards dissolving the embattled Ghana Football Association (GFA), after an explosive documentary in June showed officials allegedly soliciting bribes worth millions of dollars.
FIFA president Gianni Infantino met a senior delegation from Accra on Thursday, with both sides agreeing to “establish a normalisation committee to replace the Executive Committee of the Ghana Football Association,” a FIFA statement said.
The committee will be staffed by people with “integrity and competence,” it added.
“Satisfied with the above measures, the Government of Ghana shall take steps to discontinue the process for the winding up of the Ghana Football Association,” FIFA further said.
Ghana’s attorney general Gloria Akuffo had said it June that “urgent measures” were needed to protect the public against the GFA, which she described as “an instrument for self-aggrandisement by people who run it to make themselves rich.”
