The newly appointed Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Henry Asante Twum has described the Media committee under Kwasi Nyantakyi administration as unnecessary committee.
“For me we don’t need a media committee for the GFA, this is because the media committees of the FA under the former President Nyantakyi were not vibrant, because in the (media) industry we are not that united. Another challenge was the issue of distance which made it difficult to hold meetings…. I think we need something different and I have suggested that in my policy to the EXCO”.
“My first observation is that the GFA Communications Department is understaffed. I travelled to Paris Saint Germain and they had 33 staff members at the communication department alone, how much more a whole FA association? So my objective is to ensure we increase our staff and also to make the contents of the GFA much more visible”.
Asante, who was then Head of Sports at EIB Media Network and has also worked with several Ghanaian media houses notably Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, Radio XYZ and Power FM, is expected to bring different methodology to make the communication department at the Ghana FA more exuberant.
