Former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Airtel Ghana, Lucy Quist, has described her appointment to the FIFA Normalisation Committee tasked to run Ghana football as an “honour” and “an opportunity to serve Ghana.”
She was named together with Dr. Kofi Amoah, Kofi Duah Adonteng and Naa Odofoley Nortey as the four people who will run football in the country until March 2019.
The Normalisation Committee was the product of talks between the government of Ghana and FIFA in August after FIFA warned of a suspension for Ghana if the case of dissolving the Ghana Football Association (GFA) was not withdrawn from court.
The Normalisation Committee per FIFA’s directives will replace the Executive Committee of the GFA and run the game in the interim in accordance with Ghana football statutes and those of FIFA.
The committee will also work out a timetable for elections of members of a new Executive Committee.
Madam Quist expressed her thoughts on the appointment and her broader vision for Ghana football in a series of tweets put out last Monday.
