A former Vice-President of the Ghana Football Association(GFA), Fred Pappoe, has backed efforts by the government to reform the Association, following the release of Anas Aremeyaw Anas’s investigative piece.
Fred Pappoe, who made an appearance on ‘After Hours’ on TV3 last Friday, argued that the “state has power to take decisions it considers to be in the interest of Ghanaians” though he insisted that the right “procedures” should be adopted.
Fred Pappoe also indicated to host Mikki Ose Berko his desire to return to the GFA if the requisite reforms are instituted.
He stated: “If the ban is lifted and the form and structure is solid and conducive enough then, ok. There will be the need for a few reforms with the structure and system.”
Repealing certain rules and regulations to enhance transparency and accountability is the advice Mr. Pappoe has for the five-member team instituted by the government to oversee activities of the GFA.
“I believe there we have a few rules and regulations that are not serving any good purpose, if you are talking about rules and regulations that will enhance transparency and accountability. And even respect for one another and other institutions. I think there are few rules and regulations that should be taken out.”
