A former President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Lepowura MND Jawula has died.
The football administration veteran had reportedly been ill for some time now.
Sources say he was earlier admitted to the University of Ghana Medical Centre before being flown out to the United States of America last week for further treatment where he passed on.
The Ghana Football Association (GFA) says it is saddened by the development and commiserated with the family in a post on Twitter.
“Our thoughts are with his family, friends and all who knew him,” the association wrote.
The late sports enthusiast was the GFA Chairman between 1997 and 2001.
It was under his watch that Black Starlets lifted the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 1995.
He is currently the chairman of the Premier League Management Committee (PLMC).
Mr Jawula was also the Lepowura of the Kujolobito Gate of Lepo-Kpembe in the Northern Region.
