Ghana FA Ethics Committee Chairman, Lawyer Nana Adjei Ampofo has stepped down from his position.
Lawyer Ampofo stormed out of the FA’s Ordinary Congress on Monday afternoon after disagreeing with the association’s statutory requirement on the number of years a legal practitioner must have to serve on the Ethics Committee.
It was proposed at Congress that the ten years Bar experience of the Chairman be maintained while the Vice Chairman is also requires a similar requirement to serve on the Committee.
But Congress on Monday voted to maintain the 10 and 5 years Bar experience required by the Chairman and the Vice respectively.
73 Congressmen voted to maintain the three the requirement while five voted against the proposal with two abstaining from voting.
It has since been agreed by the Ordinary Congress of the Ghana FA that the number of years of experience at the Bar by the Chairman of the Appeals Committee and his vice remains ten and five years respectively.
Deputy Commissioner of Police, Lawyer Kofi Boakye’s qualification to adjudicate the Techiman City and Wa Africa United alleged bribery case was called to question since he did not have the required 10 years of experience, meaning he was not fit to sit in for the Chairman.
Following the amendment this means DCOP Kofi Boakye still qualifies to retain his position since he has 8 years of experience as a legal practitioner.
