ACCRA, Oct. 8 (Xinhua) -- FIFA, the World football governing body, on Tuesday extended the mandate of the Ghana FA Normalization Committee (NC) by more than one month to steer the affairs of football in Ghana.

The extension, which was granted by the Bureau of the FIFA Council, will enable the three-member NC to supervise the upcoming GFA elections.

The second mandate of the NC expired on Sept. 30.

"However, in view of the upcoming GFA elections, FIFA has extended the Normalization Committee's mandate up to Nov. 17, 2019, to enable it to complete the process of electing a new president and executive committee," said the FIFA statement.

So far, the NC has managed to work on the new GFA statues and is expected to wrap up its work after the election and swearing-in of the new FA president and executive council on Oct. 25.

The winner of the presidential poll will replace Kwesi Nyantakyi who is serving a FIFA life ban following the airing of a documentary last year, which exposed bribery and corruption in the administration of football in Ghana.
