Meanwhile, the government of Ghana on Tuesday, 28 August went to court to withdraw the suit following the threat from FIFA.

Mr Oppong Nkrumah told journalists on Tuesday that:

“Yesterday the 27th of August we received a letter from FIFA subsequent to our engagements with them. That letter says essentially about four things: First that FIFA had withdrawn the notice that it served that it could suspend the GFA from its activities. Second; that the Bureau of FIFA Council had on the 27th of August decided to appoint the Normalisation Committee for the Ghana Football Association (GFA). The mandate of the committee has also been spelt out.”

He added:

“In the coming days, a delegation from FIFA and CAF are expected in Ghana to assess the suitability of the names that have been proposed by the Government of Ghana for that Normalisation Committee. It is our expectation that this will pave the way for the re-organisation of Ghana football, moving forward.”
