According to Him, the GFA held a meeting at the premises of the team hotel in Ivory Coast for on Monday, January 15, the night Ghana suffered a defeat to Cape Verde. The meeting went on for hours and continued to the following day at dawn. A decision was arrived on which was to sack Chris Hughton but Gabby Otchere Darko and other government officials convinced the GFA to suspend its decision until after Ghana’s AFCON campaign.
