Only 10 Ghanaian football clubs submitted proposals to the FIFA/CAF Liaison team in a damning assessment of the mandate of the two-man committee.
The paltry figure flies in the face of attempts by the two-man team to solicit ideas in a bid to restore normalcy to local football.
Several clubs have been reluctant to submit proposals to the committee- citing their lack of locus in requesting for ideas from the same clubs who have been accused negatively in the local media.
Businessman Dr Kofi Amoah and Ghana FA technical director Francis Oti Akenteng were appointed by FIFA to mediate between them and Caf as they seek to ensure the continuous running of football in the country.
But the two men appear to have hit a brick wall after majority of clubs refused to cooperate with them for going beyond their mandate.
Many clubs are unwilling to submit proposals – urging the two-man committee to focus on their core mandate of coordinating activities of the national teams.
Dreams FC administrative manager Ameenu Shardow confirmed on Monday that his outfit refused to submit their proposal.
“We took a principle position that the Liaison team have gone beyond their mandate by requesting clubs to submit their proposal,” he told Asempa FM
“They (Liaison team) should go back and check their term of reference. There no where that allows them to solicit for ideas from clubs.
“They are to work within their remit. Their core mandate is to facilitate the smooth running of national teams.”
New Edubiase president Abdul Salam Yakubu has thrown shades at the FIFA Liaison team, insisting his outfit has ‘no ideas’ to share with the two-man team who are asking for suggestions from clubs to restore football to normalcy.
Local giants Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko as well as Medeama, Karela and Techiman City and Ashantigold are few of the clubs that have submitted their proposal to the club’s umbrella body, GHALCA.
