Eddie Doku Not In Favour of Novelty League Proposal Despite GPL Delay

Executive committee member of the Ghana Football Association Edward Kormieteh Doku has downplayed suggestions that this season’s Ghana Premier League should be discard for a novelty league.

The 2017/18 Ghana Premier League which was supposed to have come this weekend has been called off indefinitely after Great Olympics served the Ghana Football Association with a court injunction letter in a protest that Bechem United fielded an unqualified player against them during last season’s campaign.

And following the uncertainty surrounding the start of the campaign, many football aficionados have suggested that the league should be scrapped off for a novelty league to help lessen financial burden on the clubs.

But Eddie Doku, who is also the Greater Accra regional football chairman and the Referees appointment committee chairman, was not in favour of the motion as he stated that clubs should rather exercise a little bit of patience for the law to take its course.

“We are not there yet to play Novelty league,we have sometime so let’s meet Olympics to discuss with them and go to court on 15th March to see what will happen,” Doku declared on Oyerepa FM.

“It will be best for our lawyers to apply for a date that is nearer than the 15th so we expedite issues.”
