Ghana would have to wait until May to join the qualifiers for the 2019 Africa Under-20 Cup of Nations to hold in Niger.
The development comes in the wake of the qualifying draw on Monday, which had the Black Satellites drawing a bye for the first round set for April.
Seven teams are expected to join the hosts for the final championship.
The Satellite will be hoping to make a return to the U-20 Afcon after failing to qualify for the last edition in 2017.
The 2019 tournament will serve as qualifiers for the Under-20 World Cup later next year.
