The GFA President in the last few weeks has been engaging major stakeholders in football to deliberate on ways to resume the game in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.
Currently, all football related activities have been suspended in the country following the government’s decision to curtail social gatherings in a bid to control the spread of the virus.
It is unknown if the GFA will continue with the league when the ban on social gathering is lifted or they will annul it.
