Congress have today, September 1 approved monthly allowance for Ghana Football Association Executive Council members, PrimeNews can confirm.
A three-man committee headed by Hearts of Oak’s Frederick Moore who is assisted by Delali Senaye (CEO of Inter Allies) and Sampson Nartey-Yoe (Financial consultant and Lecturer) has recommended that the GFA president should be paid a monthly allowance of GH¢12,000.
The ad-hoc committee also proposed that, the Vice President, Mark Addo should be on GH¢7,000 while the rest of the ExCo members be on GH¢4,000 allowance.
The new proposal is a marked departure from the status quo where members were only paid sitting allowances during the Kwesi Nyantakyi era but the committee headed by Mr Frederick Nana Kweku Moore, the Chief Executive Officer of Accra Hearts of Oak believes it is not the right way to go.
At the GFA’s 26th Ordinary Congress held at Prampram today, delegates discussed the issue of emoluments for GFA’s Executive Council and it was approved that henceforth the ExCo will be paid a monthly allowance.
The approval means the GFA President will now take home a monthly salary of GH¢12,000, GH¢7,000 for his Vice and GH¢4,000 for each Exco member.
Also the siting allowance for them are = GH¢1,600 for the president, GH¢1,400 for Vice, GH¢1,300 for other members.
