‘Ghana football doesn’t need academic qualification’
Kojo Addae-Mensah, CEO of Databank says there is no need demanding for an academic qualification before one contest for a position at the Ghana Football Association.
On Monday, report emerged that an Ad-hoc committee of the Normalisation Committee have proposed educational qualifications be introduced to persons who will want to contest for top positions at the Ghana Football Association.
Reports say, only persons with Masters can contest for the Ghana Football Association Presidency as well as persons with Degrees will contest for the Executive Committee positions.
“I am surprised by this proposal of the masters degree requirement for GFA aspirants but let’s see if Congress will approve it, Kojo Addae-Mensah told Happy FM.
In his opinion, there have been some personalities in football who have been successful without educational certificates and the problem of Ghana football is about governance and not educational qualification or certification.
“The fact that you have a degree or not is not the issue at stake. Our problem is with governance. There are people with no degree or masters degree but they have done well in the footballing sector.
“We should run seminars and skills training to equip football people with knowledge.
“There are some people who couldn’t continue their education maybe because of financial challenges not necessarily because they were not intelligent”, he added.
