Nana Oduro Sarfo has insisted that it is in the power of the Ghana Football Association Executive Council to amend the Ghana Premier League regulations without going to congress for approval.
Speaking in a radio interview monitored by primenewsghana.com, the Executive Council member said they were right to amend the regulations.
While Article 23(5) A & 25 (1) of the GFA statutes accords congress with the supreme and legislative authority and power, it appears Article 39(K) of the amended statutes has vested parallel legislative authority on the Executive Council.
“First we had general regulations but since we copy from FIFA, the way they do their things and the statues they gave us… Article 23 gives congress the powers and Article 39 gives GFA the powers to regulate competitions, issue and approve.
And we felt that henceforth we don’t want a situation that you are going to use the general regulation that we have to play the MTN FA Cup. The same general regulation to play, Division One, Ghana Premier League and RFA competitions.
So we did separate regulations for every competition.”
His comment comes on the back of a protest filed by Great Olympics against Medeama SC in which the former won.
