According to him, the transparency and accountability of the GFA will contribute immensely as the nation prepares for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

“It is also your obligation to account to the good people of our country the stewardship. You must disclose all transactions of Memorandums of understanding, sponsorship, packages, agreements entered into be it foreign or local to the Ministry. This is extremely important and crucial as we prepare for Qatar 2022,” he stated.
