GENERAL MANAGER of Techiman Eleven Wonders, Takyi Arhin, has disclosed that he, together with the president of Techiman City FC, Charles Kwadwo Ntim, petitioned the FIFA delegation about the eligibility of Lepowura Alhaji MND Jawula to be a member of the Normalisation Committee.
The FIFA delegation, which consisted of acting CAF 1st vice president, Amaju Pinnick, Mr Veron Mosengo Omba, FIFA’s Director for Member Associations, and Mr Nicola Luca, FIFA Manager for Member Associations, announced the names of the Normalisation Committee members on the premises of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
The committee includes Dr Kofi Amoah, a business mogul, Lucy Quist, a former CEO of Airtel Ghana, Lawyer Duah Adonten and Naa Odofoley Nortey.
The Normalisation Committee will run Ghana football for the next six months following the country’s football hitting crisis level.
Prior to the big announcement, a former GFA chairman, Alhaji Jawula, who is a member of CAF’s Organising Committee for Inter-clubs competitions, was reported to be a firm favourite to be named on the committee after he was interviewed by the FIFA delegation.
However, his name was dramatically excluded from the list at the last moment to the shock of the Ghanaian football populace.
Arhin revealed that he teamed up with Ntim, who is known in football circles as ‘Mickey Charles’, to petition the world’s football governing body delegation in Acrra about the eligibility of the former Ghana FA boss.
“Myself and Micky Charles wrote a petition to FIFA about Alhaji Jawula’s inclusion in the Normalisation Committee. We sent them the 2007 Auditor General’s report, which implicated Alhaji Jawula for malfeasance,” Arhin said.
