In a swift move to address the strike of the referees in the ongoing Normalization Committee (NC) Special Competition over unpaid officiating fees, sports minister Hon. Isaac Asiamah has called for an urgent meeting with the Referees Association of Ghana (RAG) and members of the NC to avert the situation.
The said meeting is scheduled for Tuesday May 7, 2019, and shall involve GHALCA Chairman, Mr. Cudjoe Fianu, representatives from the NC as well as chairman of RAG, Mr. Joe Debrah.
At the meeting, the sports minister is expected to assure RAG of payment of the officiating fees with immediate effect following an earlier assurance from the Finance Ministry.
The Finance Ministry has, according to reliable sources, assured to release funds to the sports ministry by tomorrow (Tuesday May 7, 2019) to clear the debts in order to prevent unhealthy halt to the Special Competition.
