I’m still a GFA staff – Saanie Daara


A former Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Ibrahim Saanie Daara, has revealed he is still a staff of the Association and is owed salary despite not playing an active role in 17 months.

He claims he still holds the Communications Director and Deputy General Secretary positions at the GFA but has been sidelined since Kwesi Nyantakyi-led administration collapsed in the aftermath of the Anas expose in June 2018.

The former BBC presenter revealed that the Normalisation Committee, the interim body appointed to manage Association’s affairs, contacted him when they took charge but decided against working with him.

Dan Kwaku Yeboah worked as the spokesperson for the Normalisation Committee.

“I am still a staff of the Ghana Football Association but I have not been paid since Number 12 and I don’t know why,” Mr Daara told Ghanaweb.

“I met Dr Kofi Amoah [Head of the Normalisation Committee] a couple of times but I never had any formal invitations calling me for staff meetings.

“When the Normalisation started I remember receiving a phone call that come for a meeting, and five minutes after that call, there was another call from the same person that said don’t come. I was surprised but it doesn’t bother me, does it?”
