Fred Pappoe says the Ghana Football Association (GFA) cannot share the $500,000 stimulus package from Fifa among the clubs.
The GFA is set to receive the $500,000 from the world football governing body aimed at paying the operational costs of the football Association.
Some Ghanaian clubs, before Fifa’s announcement, called on the Ghana FA for financial support, and have since demanded for their share of the stimulus package.
But Pappoe – a former vice-president of the GFA indicated the money from Fifa is purely for operational costs which the FA will account for.
“The money is for FA operational expenses and there are clear guidelines on what the money can be used for. It makes it difficult if clubs are demanding for a share of the money. The prescription and guidelines which accompanies the money will not allow the GFA to do that”, he told Happy FM.
“The monies given to the GFA will be accounted for, and there will be auditing as well by FIFA”.
He indicated that the GFA should send a proposal to FIFA if they are to extend support to the clubs.
“I am sure the GFA can put up a proposal to FIFA to explain to them about sharing the money with the Ghanaian clubs during these difficult times.”
