Both the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) have stepped up their game towards the pending Dec 7 polls. As of the time of filing this report, there are exactly 83 days left for the General Parliamentary and Presidential Elections. After the launch of their respective manifestoes, the parties are aggressively selling their ideas to the Ghanaian electorates for the voters’ thumbs.
The NDC is promising to pay local players when they get the mandate of Ghanaians to rule in December.
According to news coming in, players in the Ghana Premier League will receive an average salary of GH₵1,500 with support from the next National Democratic Congress government. This was made known by the Communications Director for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) – Sammy Gyamfi.
Some players have been calling for a minimum wage law to be enforced in order to ensure that players in Ghana are paid well like their counterparts in Europe and other parts of the world. This is geared towards the avoidance of ‘player transfer exodus’ outside the country.
The NDC manifesto promised the launch of a sports fund that will be dedicated to sports development in the country.
Sammy Gyamfi said the sports fund will support football clubs to pay players at least GH₵1,500 as a monthly salary.
