Ghana Football Association (GFA) has planned its 26th Congress for 1st September. According to reports, the country’s football governing wants new auditors to audit its accounts. Audits that can enable furnish the clubs with its expenditure for the year.
Therefore, President of Tema Youth FC, Wilfred Osei Kwaku has urged clubs to boycott the upcoming Congress. This if GFA fails to present its financial statement to all clubs.
Hence, Wilfred Osei Kwaku argues that the FA should rely on its old auditors to carry out the job. And then make details available to Congress. He stressed that it’s mandatory for GFA to provide the various stakeholders of its expenditure before Congress to take place.
“To the best of my knowledge, the auditors who audited the GFA’s previous account are still at post.” The former marketing committee member of the Ghana FA told Asempa FM. “Therefore, we cannot go to congress without the financial statement of the Association. Which is one of the mandatory items needed for the congress.” Osei Palmer added.
The Ghana FA has set Congress for September 1 at the Ghanaman Soccer Center of Excellence, Prampram.
The stakeholders have been notified of the date which coincidentally clashes with the Court of Arbitration of Sports (CAS) ruling on the Ghana FA versus Wilfred Osei Kwaku.
Osei Palmer is battling the Ghana FA at CAS over his disqualification from the last year’s GFA Presidential elections by the Normalization Committee.
