The General Secretary of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Isaac Addo, has relinquished his position on health grounds.

This was disclosed by the Normalisation Committee (NC) of the GFA on Wednesday.
 
Speaking at a press conference held at the Alisa Hotel today (Wednesday), a member of the NC, Naa Odofoley Nortey, said Mr Addo intimated to the four-man committee that he had some health challenges and therefore needed sometime off to seek medical attention.
 
She explained that since the issue had to do with health, the NC readily granted him permission in order to seek treatment.
 
It is, however, not clear whether Mr Addo will return to his post after his recovery.
 
Naa Odofoley said in his absence, his deputy, Mr Alex Asante, who doubles as the International Relations Officer, would act as the head of the secretariat.
 
In view of that, Mr Addo was conspicuously missing at Wednesday’s event.
 
However, Mr Addo was present at the inauguration of the Dr Kofi Amoah-led Normalisation Committee at the GFA Conference Room last month.
 
Until Wednesday’s announcement, rumours were rife that Mr Addo, who served under the former FA president, Kwesi Nyantakyi, had been replaced by the NC due to his allegiance to his former boss.
