The decision comes in the wake of Ghana's lacklustre performance in recent international friendly matches against Mexico and the USA.
The leadership of the football governing body has expressed concerns about Hughton's ability to lead the team effectively in the upcoming World Cup 2026 qualifiers against Madagascar and Comoros.
Ghana's national team, the Black Stars, has struggled under Hughton's leadership, with a series of unimpressive results over seven matches.
The GFA had initially taken steps to part ways with Hughton following Ghana's last AFCON qualifier against the Central African Republic. However, these efforts were not approved by the Sports Ministry at the time.
Subsequently, after the Black Stars' friendly defeat against the USA, the GFA revived its bid to remove Hughton, but the request faced rejection by the Sports Ministry.
It remains uncertain whether the Ministry has since reconsidered its stance, but sources suggest that Cabinet has not endorsed the GFA's decision.
The situation has also revealed internal tensions within the Black Stars' technical team and the FA leadership, including disagreements over player call-ups and reports of disunity within the technical staff.
The upcoming Executive Council meeting on Friday will play a pivotal role in determining Chris Hughton's fate as the head coach of the Black Stars.
Nevertheless, sources indicate that not all members of the Council are in agreement with the decision to part ways with Hughton.
