$4000 Allowance Was A Chicken Change - Naa Odofoley Nortey

A member of the defunct Normalization Committee of the Ghana Football Association, Naa Odofoley Nortey has sarcastically revealed that her $4000 allowance was a chicken change.

According to the legal practitioner, the monthly allowance was a peanut compared to what she was losing at her job side.

She said they were not there for the money but were there out of love to help the nation's football get back to its feet.

Ms Odofoley also short down rumours linking her with the vacant General Secretary job of the GFA as she said she is not interested and even has a lot on her plate.

“Again I don’t mean to sound funny but 4000 dollars, that’s one Gucci bag. I don’t know the kind of people and how much they earn but in my 16 years of practice, 4000 dollars is a quarter of a basic divorce you do. I’m sorry but its nothing”.

“It was annoying and I feel sorry for them. They think 4000 dollars is what I would charge. I probably need to get my office to quantify what I have lost in terms of fees in this one year. I can assure you that 4000 dollars is a chicken change”, she told Ghanaweb.

The former Normalization Committee member who says she was not surprised Kurt Okraku won the GFA elections has called on all persons involved in football to be patient and help the new GFA with support needed.

“Be patients with the President and his Executives. Give them about three months as honeymoon period and stop lambasting them, it is not good.”

“I’m confident they will deliver,'' she told Sikka FM.

Naa Odofoley Nortey was among an initial four-member ad-hoc body named Normalization Committee to oversee our football after the Anas expose titled 'Number 12'.
