According to Henry Asante Twum, who is the Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), the association cannot challenge the decision by government over suspension of football in the country.
His comments come after the Ghana Premier League (GPL) was suspended in March due to the outbreak of coronavirus in the country.
However, football fans are unclear whether the football season will cancelled or not due to the rapid growth of the deadly coronavirus disease.
In an interview with an Accra-based FM station, Henry Asante expressed that the Ghana FA is working hand in hand with the government to know the fate of the topflight league.
“We cannot sideline the government and do anything on our own. We have to consult, dialogue, and do all the various engagement before taking any decision. But the truth is that we cannot challenge the government if they insist football should still be on suspension till September or December”
“We’ve given ourselves till the end of June. As an FA, we are dialoguing, consulting, taking views and exploring every single avenue or option which is available to us” He said.
Led by Dr. Baba Adam, the medical team of GFA met the Gov’t medical advising team on Thursday, May 21, 2020 to deliberate on the future of the football season under COVID-19.
