Ghana Government’s scheduled meeting with a Fifa delegation on Friday has been “postponed until further notice”, the Sports Ministry has announced.
Three Fifa officials were expected in Accra today, June 21, to discuss the way forward for the country’s football crisis.
But “the postponement has become necessary as Government continue to engage in very important and comprehensive consultations with major stakeholders in the football industry,” contents of a statement signed by spokesperson Elvis Adjei-Baah read.
“This, Government believes, would enable it satisfy all internal processes and consultation ahead of the meeting.
“Nonetheless, Government wishes to reiterate its willingness to engage the World body Fifa in dialogue which would ultimately result in positive reforms that Ghanaians desire to see,” it added.
Football activities have ground to a halt over the past week after government secured an interim injunction from a High Court in Accra on the Ghana Football Association and its officials.
The Ghana government has been on a course to dissolve the FA following revelations of alleged graft by top football officials including its chief Kwesi Nyantakyi (now resigned) and referees in an explosive undercover documentary aired on June 6.
