The Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has appointed Financial Economist Sampson Narteh-yoe to replace Mr Wilfred Kwaku Osei on the three-man ad hoc compensation committee.
This follows the decision of the President of Tema Youth Sporting Club, Mr Kwaku Osei Palmer, to decline his appointment to serve on the committee for personal reasons.
Mr Narteh-yoe is a lecturer in Finance and Business Policy and Strategy with over 20 years of work experience in various industries including telecoms, banking, petroleum, fast-moving consumer goods (FMCGs), manufacturing and NGOs.
Currently, he is a financial consultant teaching Business Policy and Strategy, Investment and Portfolio Management, International Trade Finance and Project Financing at the University of Professional Studies, Accra.
Mr Narteh-yoe is expected to offer his expertise when he joins the Chief Executive Officer of Accra Hearts of Oak Sporting Club, Mr Frederick Nana Kweku Moore, and Chief Executive Officer of Inter Allies Football Club, Mr Delali Eric Senaye, on the committee.
The mandate of the committee, as provided under Article 42(2) of the GFA Statutes 2019, is to propose to the GFA Congress the remuneration of members of the Executive Council.
The committee is expected to submit its work in time to form part of the Congress documents that will be sent to members of Congress as the formal convocation of Congress under Article 31(3) of the GFA Statutes 2019.
