Government has decided to pay workers of the crisis-hit Ghana Football Association.
The fate of the staff of the country’s football association has been in the balance since the GFA Secretariat was declared a crime scene by the Ghana Police Service following revelations of #Number12, the investigative documentary by Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
A month has passed since these workers, who were hitherto paid from the GFA’s coffers, were rendered inactive.
But government has through the recently constituted Fifa/Caf liaison team communicated its resolve to settle the salaries of workers at the GFA for the month of June.
In a meeting with club owners and the Ghana League Clubs Association (Ghalca) at Alisa Hotel on Monday, the liaison team led by “Dr. Amoah also averred that the Government was committed to the participation of Ghana’s National teams in the various competitions. He called on clubs to release players for camping and added that FIFA had not banned Ghana from football, therefore the activities of the National teams cannot be done in isolation since the clubs were a bedrock to provision of players to the National teams,” read portions of a press release.
Both Ghana’s U-20 male and female teams will be reopening camp at Prampram on Tuesday, starrsportsgh.com has confirmed. The males, Black Satellites have had the star of their 2019 Afcon qualifying double header against Benin rescheduled from July 13 to July 29.
The Black Princesses, on the other hand, have less than a month to get ready for the U-20 Women’s World Cup in France.
