Chairman of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Youth, Sports and Culture, Alex Kofi Agyekum has cautioned officiating officials of the Normalisation Special Competition to be fair in the field of play.
According to the Mpohor Member of Parliament, the referees have only the field to demonstrate to the world that they are ready and also helping the Normalisation Committee to normalise the game in Ghana.
He indicated that the referees should come clean and disregard any negative incident that had happened in the past.
“If you are a referee and you have past grievances, you can opt out, you shouldn’t bring your past experience into this new thing we are doing,” he cautioned.
“This game (special competition) we have started, anything that will cause its destruction must be prevented right from the onset,” he added.
There have been several problems with officiating since the Special Competition kicked off; FIFA referee, Theresa Brememsu, and Charles Bulu have suffered assault from Prisons Ladies and Accra Lions supporters respectively.
Also, teams such as AshGold, Kotoko, Aduana, Hearts of Oak and Berekum Arsenals officials have complained bitterly about officiating after Match-Day 5.
