GFA officials donate Ghs 59,000 monthly to Offinso accident victims, after 6 had lost their lives.

Some six young footballers have died in an accident that occurred at Offinso in the Ashanti Region, last Saturday.

The development has also left four other players in critical condition.

The children, aged between 12 and 15 were returning from Afrancho to Offinso after undergoing colts division registration when the accident occurred.

Following the incident, all the members of the Council collectively decided on Monday, September 21, 2020, to support the victims.

The GFA on Sunday, September 20, 2020 sent a delegation led by Executive Council member Frederick Acheampong and Ashanti Regional Football Association Chairman, Osei Tutu Agyemang to Offinso to commiserate with families of the victims and to visit the injured players.

With the GFA President on a monthly allowance of Ghs12,000, his vice on Ghs 7,000 and the remaining 10 Exco members on Ghs 4,000 each, the total amount earmarked for donation to the victims will come up to Ghs 59,000.
