The Chief Executive Officer of Bechem United, Nana Kwasi Darlyn wants the Ghana Football Association to help government in the fight against Covid-19 by supporting with part of its FIFA’s fund.
The GFA is set to receive $500,000 from FIFA in the coming days to ease their financial constraint in the wake of the Covid-19.
The GFA in time past had a dialogue with government, appealing to come to the aid of clubs in the country since football activities have been halted due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
But Nana Kwesi Darlyn thinks the GFA must do a donation to government to make a statement that they share in the challenges they are encountering at the moment.
He also believes this move could serve as a bait to convince government to release further funds to the GFA.
“Personally I think there must be a donation to government’s Covid-19 fund, so that they will see that GFA is responsible”, he told Asempa Sports.
“So that it will not protray the picture that we always want to receive.”
“If we allocate even a small amount to them and government notices that we are responsible, then they might even consider topping up the money for us because of our kind gesture”.
“I want us to show the government that (we are responsible ), I don’t think its something that’s difficult, the Ex-Co will sit down and realise this makes sense so they will pick it up” he concluded.
Ghana’s COVID-19 cases currently stand at 1,550. with 11 deaths and 155 recoveries.
