The Vice Chairman of the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA), Alex Ackumey has expressed his surprise over claims that his outfit has officially written to the CAF/FIFA two-man liaison team to truncate the 2017/18 Ghana Premier League.
On Wednesday, the Public Relations Officer of the two-man CAF/FIFA liaison team, Dan Kweku Yeboah in an interview with Happy FM‘s Anopa Bosuo Sports revealed that GHALCA, which is the mother body of clubs in Ghana, has officially asked his outfit to nullify the 2017/18 league campaign as they continue to search for resolution to football crises in the country.
However, in reacting to the team’s claims during an interview on the same platform, Mr. Ackumey denied any knowledge of such communique to the liaison team from his outfit.
“GHALCA have set up a committee to deal with the liaison team. I have been out of town so I’m not aware they advised that the league should be discontinued,” Mr. Ackumey stated on Happy FM.
“I am sure my chairman and executive members of GHALCA are aware of the committee’s reply to the liaison team.”
“Even though, personally I don’t think the league should continue,” he added.
What one cannot fathom is the fact that the vice chairman of the association can be isolated from such an important decision.
When asked if one can conclude there are divisions amongst them he said, “GHALCA is not divided. It has never happened and it won’t happen. We all have different views but it doesn’t mean that we are divided”.
“The Liaison team was seeking for suggestions and ideas. The way forward would have to come from views shared.”
The ban came after reaching the second round of the 2017/18 premier league Zylofon Cash premier league.
