The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has increased its filing fee for the president of the football governing body from GHC 5,000 to GHC 50,000, JoySports reports.
The association in a communique to members on June 24, 2023, stated that the administration of the elections is expensive, hence their decision to appeal to Congress to approve the new nomination fee.
In 2019, the now-defunct Normalisation Committee charged GHC 5,000 per candidate, but the Kurt Okraku-led administration has increased the figure to GHC 50,000 following a proposal from the Elections Committee.
The Executive Council nomination form which was GHC 2,500 has been increased to GHC 15,000 while Regional Football Association (RFAs) nomination form will be for GHC 10,000.
Other positions such as the RFA slot on the Executive Council will be sold for GHC 5,000, District Chairman is GHC 1000, and District Executive Council forms will be sold for GHC 5000.
The GFA will convene Congress on July 10, 2023, and would expect that members approve the proposal.
