Ghana FA boss Nyantakyi defends ex gratia for Ex Co members

Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi has defended the proposed 10,000 Ghana cedis ex-gratia for out-going members of the Executive committee of the federation.

Congress, the highest decision body of federation, will take a final decision on the amount in August.

The motion which was moved by Acting CEO of Aduana Stars Kofi Manu at an extra-ordinary congress two weeks has been met with harsh criticisms.

But Nyantakyi, a Caf Executive Committe member, agrees the 21-man body deserves the end of service payment.

He told Citi Sports: "It's a voluntary work and they don't get paid for what they do and therefore if a little amount to serve as a mark of appreciation shouldn't call for any furore."

"Congress which is the highest decision body has the authority to take the final decision on the issue. The members of the Executive committee make a lot of sacrifices and nobody talks about it and what they have done."

"They only get sitting allowances and so I think we should make them happy."

    Nonsense Nyantakyi - with whose money and taxes? What at all do the congress members do, and how many times a year do they meet? Are u crazy or what? This guy has been causing financial loss to this country in very subtle ways and its about time he sits his butt up or get dealt with! Nonsense effusions! Either they keep taking the sitting allowances or they vacate their seats for new ones to take over - jackasses!

    but who forced them into these executive council business? they knew it a "no pay job " but just look at the mad rush at which they are clamoring for re elections; worst still those who were hitherto not known to certain clubs have so soon qualified as being affiliated to these clubs for two years or more. and who said its a sacrificial job? can they tell s how much they earned as committee members on the various national teams in the names of per derms , wining & loosing bonuses, traveling allowances and the unaccountable imprest, not to talk of the dubious midsea business etc. anyway they will finally tell you its their own association and the laws unfortunately supports them to keep on with their thievery, after all their bosses in FIFA are worse off,
