The government official is with high hopes ahead of the meeting with Fifa in Zurich on Friday

Cynthia Maamle Morrison, member of parliament for Agona West constituency, is upbeat ahead of the meeting with Fifa in Zurich on Friday.

A four-man government delegation made up of youth and sports minister Isaac Asiamah, deputy Attorney General Godfred Dame and deputy chief of staff Samuel Abu Jinapor and Maamle left the country for Switzerland on Thursday.

The delegation and Fifa are expected to discuss the way forward for Ghanaian football after all activities related to the sport were suspended in the wake of a documentary that unveiled corrupt practices involving referees and administrators.

“We will be meeting Fifa in Zurich with a single mission of restoring the image of Ghana football after the exposé,” Mamle told Ashh FM.

“The reason why I do not attend the stadiums in Ghana during Ghana Premier League and other games is because of the poor state of football in the country. However, I’m sure our return from the meeting will send fans back to the stadiums during football games.

“When we return, we will be open to give vivid report on what transpired in Zurich," she added.

According to Goal's sources, there was no Ghana football association member in the team because of an order by Fifa due to a court injunction from the government.
