The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has pooh-poohed the Transparency International report on the association and the world football governing body.
In the transparency International report released on Monday, the Ghana FA was rated as one of the world’s worst managed football association after claiming the soccer governing body had scored zero in all four categories of the Football Governance League Table, comprising financial reports, organization charter, annual activity report and code of conduct/ethics.
But in an interview on Joy FM, Communication Director of the GFA, Ibrahim Saani Daara said the TI report is “shoddy”.
“The research work done by Transparency International is erroneous. The GFA has financial reports that were presented to members of Congress recently. We have a code of conduct and even an organisation
charter,” Daara said on Joy FM.
“Transparency International did not contact the Ghana FA for documentary evidence so I am disappointed in their research because it lacks accuracy,” he added.
The obviously disappointed Saani Daara further added that the Ghana FA submitted its annual report to the GFA 22nd ordinary congress, and expected the Transparency International capture that.
"During the congress in Prampram, we presented our annual report to the board, so for Transparency International to say that they can't find our financial reports and what not on the FA website, doesn't mean that we don't do it.
