“I doubt Saani Daara said GFA will appoint Referees” – GFA EXCO Member Eddie Doku


Eddy Doku has distinct himself from comments by Saani Daara that the Ghana Football Association will be appointing referees for League matches.

GFA Communication Director Saani Daara told Esther Amankwah of Angel TV – “the FA will henceforth not take the list (referees) from the Referees Association of Ghana, GFA will do the selection of referees”.

Saani claims that will put away the misconception of corruption in the appointment of the referees.

According to Saani Daara GFA will be appointing Referees for League Matches.

“Henceforth, we will not take the list from the referees association of Ghana(RAG)”.

“Is not like the GFA is managing it,that’s why we are appointing a referees manager”. Saani told Angel TV

With this, the Chairman of the Referees Appointment Committee Eddy Doku stood dumbfounded on the revelation made by the Sanni Daara.

“Saani I know will never say something that does not come from us”.

“I doubt what Saani Daara said. I believe that’s not what he said, maybe the media is taking him out of contest”, he fumed.

The astute football administrator, Doku, further enlighten that,”We are the committee of the GFA in charge of the referees, we are not the referees appointment Committee. Is the responsibility of the referees committee to train, appoint referees and discipline referees”.

Doku in an interview with Top FM revealed that he is in doubt where the said report is coming from,” I will not agree, Saani Daara I know will not say something like that”.

“The media is taking Saani out of contest and taking the fume of the whole thing”.
