Aspiring Ghana FA President George Afriyie has pledged to scrap officiating fees for all football clubs in Ghana.
Afriyie, former Ghana FA President, has resisted calls from Kwesi Nyantakyi’s ‘cronies’ to rescind his decision to contest for the seat in 2019.
Incumbent President Kwesi Nyantakyi has stated publicly he won’t seek re-election but according to Ghana Sports Online checks he is set to make a U-turn which many Ghanaians believe is a breach of trust.
Afriyie has been interacting with the media in Accra on Monday morning and revealed to Accra-based Asempa FM that he has drafted in his blueprint to scrap officiating fee for clubs if he becomes the GFA President.
“No club will pay officiating fee in Ghana anymore from Colts to Division Two to Division One,” he said.
The Okyeman Planners bankrolled also revealed he was ready to fork the officiating for the Division One clubs this season but an ally of Nyantakyi told him to pay for political power reasons.
