Managing Director for Accra Hearts of Oak, Fredrick Moore, believes the current leadership of the Ghana Football Association should be voted out of power if they fail to deliver on their set objectives.
The FA’s decision to change its remuneration plan for members of the executive committee has generated a lot of controversy.
While Moore believes Exco members deserve the monies they are earning he wants their tenure at the helm of affairs to be judged purely on performance.
“For any role that you play, you are not just paid because of your certificate or the fact that you are there, but for the role that you are playing, He said.
“And that role for the salary you get, has to have an accountability.
“We need a football association in Ghana that can take football to the next level and if they are rewarded and they don’t take Ghana to the next level, then it is incumbent on the rest of us to vote them out.” He concluded.
“We need an ExCo in Ghana, we need a football association in Ghana, that can take Ghana to the next level and if they are rewarded and they don’t take Ghana to the next level, then it is incumbent on the rest of us to vote them out,” he stated.
In the previous administration, only the Emergency Committee (EmCo) were on monthly remuneration from the football governing body.
Then President, Kwesi Nyantakyi was on GHS 4,388, while his Vice, George Afriyie was on over GHS 3,000. The three other EmCo members were on a little over GHS 2,600.
GHS 12,000 for the President, Kurt Okraku, many says is ‘too much’. But, Moor insists other corporate organisations pay higher allowances.
“In an economy or in a football community, we want our football to be at the next level; there are things that we have to do today to take our football to the next level.
“If we want to hold our ExCo members and our President to account, that accountability has to be rewarded.
“We looked at companies that were paying thee ore four times but we decided that we couldn’t. If we did that, the budget or the turnover could not sustain it. We also looked at the bottom end.
“If we looked at those figures, they are closer to the bottom than to the top,” he concluded.
The FA leadership will be on GHS 1,600 for President, GHS 1,400 Vice President and GHS 1,300 sitting allowances, too. They are entitled to two suits and one African print as well.
There is also $500, $400 and $300 per diem for the hierarchy for foreign travels, GHS 600, GHS 400 and GHS 300 for local travels.
