Cudjoe Fianoo talks about how the committee can take Ghana football to the next level

Ghana League Clubs Association chairman Cudjoe Fianoo wants the domestic league handed over to an independent administrative body as part of reforms being carried out by Fifa's newly-established Normalization Committee for the country's football.

A four-member committee has been given the mandate of reorganising the Ghana Football Association after an investigative documentary, in June, exposed bribery and match-fixing activities of top officials and referees. 

“We want to see our league being run by an autonomous body," Fianoo said, as reported by Citinewsroom.

"We want to see our referees behave professionally.

"We want elections to be approached by voting from the bottom to the top and not the top to the bottom.

“[They should ensure] adjudicating bodies are up to the task. Justice must be dispensed with dispatch, so that when someone goes foul to the law, the law should take its course."

The June exposé led to the resignation of FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi, the dissolution of the Executive Committee and the declaration of the FA's premises as a crime scene by local police. 

According to the world football's governing body, the work of the committee includes "running the GFA’s daily affairs and cooperating with the special task force, reviewing the GFA statutes to ensure compliance with the requirements of Fifa and Caf, particularly art. 15 of the FIFA Statutes" and "organising and conducting elections of a GFA executive committee on the basis of the revised GFA statutes once the GFA statutes meet the requirements of Fifa and Caf".
