SaanieDaara says he’s still GFA staff; and is owed salary

A former Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Ibrahim SaanieDaara, 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 KwesiNyantakyi-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 KwakuYeboah worked as the spokesperson for the Normalisation Committee.

He said, although working with the GFA opened doors for him, he is currently receiving more financial reward for his works than he used to.

Mr Daara is a member of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) media experts panel and was actively involved during this year’s Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Egypt.

He was the CAF Media Officer for the opening ceremony as well as the final match which Algeria won 1-0 over Senegal in Cairo.
