The Ghana FA Normalization Committee has appointed a 5-member Ethics Committee to adjudicate alleged unethical conducts of member of the association filmed in the Anas #12 Expose last year.
In a statement signed by the Communication Department of the Ghana FA, the 5-member committee will be chaired by Justice Samuel Asiedu.
“The Normalization Committee of the Ghana Football Association has named a five-member Ethics Committee for the Association.
“The members are; High Court Judge Justice S.K. Asiedu, who will be the Chairman of the Committee and Private Legal Practitioner Dr. Frederick Boamah, will be the Vice Chairman of the Committee,” the statement read.
“Other members of the Committee are private legal practitioners Bright Okyere-Adjekum, David A. Asiedu and Miss Nabeela Wahab.
“Bright Okyere-Adjekum and David A. Asiedu are with G.A. Sarpong & Co and ENS Africa respectively, while Miss Nabeela Wahab is a Principal State Attorney with the Attorney General Department.
“Three persons have also been named as prosecutors to the Ethics Committee.
They are: Superintendent Alexander Odonkor, Superintendent Solomon Korli and Miss Wilhelmina Quist-Therson,” it concluded.
The decision of the Normalization Committee has been described by many as a good intervention at the wrong time.
The Anas #12 Expose was dramatically staged in June 2018, and many expected the Normalization Committee to have appointed the Ethics Committee to trial members who were alleged to have carried out unethical acts in the football industry.
With less than a month to end their mandate, many are left wondering why the NC has chosen to appoint the Ethics Committee now when they could have done so months ago.
