The General Secretary of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Prosper Harrison Addo and the Association's Chief Finance Officer (CFO) Collins Dei, have attended the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Governance Workshop for CAF Member Associations, held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The workshop, which took place from June 7th to June 9th, 2024, was designed to enhance governance and financial global best practices among CAF Member Associations.

The workshop brought together General Secretaries and Finance Directors from various Member Associations of CAF. The event provided a platform for attendees to share their experiences and insights, generating an environment of collaborative learning aimed at enhancing governance standards across the continent.

The participation of the General Secretary and Chief Finance Officer in this workshop underscores the GFA's commitment to adopting and implementing global best practices in governance and financial management.

The workshop aligns with the strategic vision of CAF President Dr. Patrice Motsepe, who has prioritized governance and ethical standards within Africa’s football associations since taking office. The workshop’s agenda was crafted to address these goals, offering sessions on various aspects of governance and financial management.

The interactive sessions allowed participants to discuss challenges and solutions, share best practices, and develop strategies to enhance their respective Associations' governance frameworks.

The collaborative approach aimed to create a unified effort towards achieving excellence in football administration across Africa. Prosper Harrison Addo expressed his appreciation for the opportunity to participate in such a pivotal event.

"The CAF Governance Workshop has been instrumental in providing us with the tools and knowledge necessary to enhance our governance practices. It is imperative that we continue to uphold the highest standards of integrity and accountability within the GFA," he stated.

The workshop's outcomes are expected to have a lasting impact on the governance structures of the participating associations. By encouraging a culture of transparency and accountability, the Associations can better serve their stakeholders and contribute to the overall development of football in Africa.

As the GFA continues to implement the insights gained from the workshop, it reaffirms its dedication to promoting good governance and ethical standards in the administration of football in Ghana.
