Were delegates mandated by clubs to move motion of no confidence against Matthias?

Dear Editor,

 

The mandate of delegates who represent various associations and affiliates at the GFF congress should be given from the very clubs who elect them to serve their interest. The question to be asked of all those clubs is, did they give the mandate to move a vote of no-confidence against the GFF President, Christopher Matthias?

Are the players and clubs aware of what their delegates did at the congress? Did the coaches of the Guyana Coaches Association give their delegation the go ahead to support a motion of no confidence and to support a walk out?

Are those delegates really representing the interest of those who elect them to serve or are they representing their own interest? I believe if those actions were in contradiction to the mandate given by the clubs/associations, coaches and or referees, then those representatives should be given a vote of no-confidence for failure to carry out the dictates of those that elected them to serve. A vote of no-confidence for carrying out one’s personal interest rather that the association’s or the affiliates.

The development of Guyana’s football development should always be paramount for all associations and affiliates of the Guyana Football Federation and self interest should always be secondary.

 

Yours faithfully,
Jermaine Figueira

Stopping the clock on an issue that isn’t quite an issue

Dear Editor, I leap in full-blooded support of Mr Lincoln Lewis’s missive ‘The Region Five Chairman has committed no infraction in relation to his official duties’ (SN, July 24) which addresses the present face-off between the Region 5 Chairman and his councillors – “a matter that has no place in the formal business of the council.” Are we really on the path of harmonizing our people after all the talk, big fuss and gala displayed for our 50th independence jubilee?
