New Edubiase CEO Labels Dr Kofi Amoah As 'Snobbish'

Chief Executive Officer of New Edubiase FC, Abdul Salam Yakubu has expressed his disappointment over the performance of the GFA Normalisation Committee, labelling Dr Kofi Amoah as "snobbish".

According to the tough-talking football administrator, things are going worse under the Kofi Amoah administration after eight months of being at the helm of Ghana football.

"That man (Dr Kofi Amoah), the new President of NC is snobbish, he will never sit with the referees to discuss anything," he said.

"From day one I have never agreed with FIFA for bringing this Normalization Committee and I think FIFA is not being fair to Ghana football."

His reaction comes at the back of an announcement by the Referees Association of Ghana (RAG) to suspend their services in the ongoing Special Competition due to unpaid allowances.

He could not fathom why the referees have not being paid as the competition enters its tenth week on Wednesday.

"What I can say is that things are getting worse under this Normalization Committee," he said.

"Their members are receiving their salaries leaving the referees to suffer."

A statement released on Monday by RAG said their action to suspend officiating matches in the competition was influenced by the failure of the Normalisation Committee to settle officiating fees before the end of April.

But according to the Normalization Committee, they have notified the Ministry of Youth & Sports about the complaints of the referees.
