– Kojo Yankah popularly known for his role as a former Executive Committee member of GFA has asked the current GFA lead by Hon. Kurt Okraku to stop begging the government for part of the stimulus package to assist clubs facing grave challenges associated to the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Just like other businesses, Football Clubs have been heavily impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. As expected, Kurt E.S Okraku decided to seek for some funds to support the clubs through a proposal to the government.
The decision of the government has not been made known yet but Kojo Yankah a senior football administrator share the belief that the efforts will not drive home any useful results. This comes as back pain when every football investor seems hopeful of a better outcome.
As a support, he rather advised that GFA demands monies owed them by government totaling the US $4 million.
In his own words, Kojo Yankah on told the Skyy Sports Show said;
“I don’t see why the GFA will go and beg the government for money when they (government) owe the FA over $4m,”. he continued to say;
“What I believe is we should rather demand that the government pay the money owed us so we can use some to cater for the problems our clubs are facing. That’s the step to take,”.
Some serious concern raised was the fact that he did not see the government as having any interest in Football.
“I don’t believe the government is willing to financially support football with money, If they have such intentions, they would have (done it) when they messed up our football after the Anas expose and we requested that they support us with some seed money. So they GFA should forget that and pursue the money that the government owes us which is $4m. That’s what we are supposed to do, the government isn’t ready to support,”.
With this knowledge, the faith of Football in Ghana is suffering second damage after the Anas Expose.
