The President of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt Edwin Simeon Okraku has hailed the decision of the National Sports Authority (NSA) to withdraw the new stadium user charges which drew much furor among football clubs and stakeholders.
The NSA announced new rates to be charged clubs who use the state’s facilities for the upcoming season in a statement earlier this week.
However, the development met fierce condemnation from the football fraternity with a general consensus that the fee were exorbitant.
The ensuing backlash, triggered an intervention by the Sports Minister, Isaac Asiamah and subsequently caused the NSA to track back while annulling the new charges announced.
Per a statement issued on Wednesday, the NSA did not only cancel the new charges but also indicated their willingness to consult relevant stakeholders to decide the way forward.
Reacting to this, the Ghana FA boss, Kurt Okraku who vocal in expressing displeasure at the initial fees, has taken to social media to express his gratitude to the NSA for giving the football ‘people’ the listening ear and paying heed to their grievances.
