Journalism has been my prior job during childhood. With all things been so good for me, I am able to achieve my aim and fulfill the promise I made to my family. I am now a renowned sports journalist working with Ghana News Page.

Players in the Ghana Premier League will receive an average salary of GH₵1,500 with support from the next National Democratic Congress government, according to the Communications Director for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Sammy Gyamfi.

Some players have been calling for a minimum wage law to be enforced to ensure that players in Ghana are paid well to avoid player transfer exodus outside the country.

The NDC manifesto promised the launch of a sports fund that will be dedicated to sports development in the country.

Sammy Gyamfi said the sports fund will support football clubs to pay players at least GH₵1,500 as a monthly salary.

“The NDC will establish a sports development fund. The government will furnish the account with enough money and also generate some from corporate bodies”, he told Kumasi FM.

“Every club that plays in the premier league will be supported with funds to settle player salaries, an average money of GHC 1,500 will be paid to each player.

“Every club that qualifies to play in the CAF Inter-club competition will also be supported. The inter-colleges games will also be supported financially with this fund.

“However, clubs that transfer players abroad will give a percentage of the money they earn into the sports fund.”
