The GFF Board must explain why after 5 months they cannot account for the non-completion of financial statements

Dear Editor,

Congratulations to the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) for the good work of starting construction of the football facility at Providence. The future of football looks bright. However, of great concern to me is an article I read in the Stabroek News on October 6 captioned ‘Qualified opinion issued on GFF 2016 accounts’.  Besides the serious allegations of financial mismanagement according to the qualified opinion of the auditors, and the fact that no financial statements were presented to the Guyana Football Federation’s Congress (its highest decision-making body) for 2016, a gross violation of the GFF constitution and possibly the Companies Act of Guyana, the GFF Board must explain to its members and the public why after five months there has been no account given for the non-completion of the financial statements and also why the organization has had five different General Secretaries (equivalent to a CEO) and five different Finance Directors in less than two years. Those occurrences certainly do not shout financial and administrative best practices. The members of the GFF deserve adequate answers to these questions.

Yours faithfully,

Chamine Lovell
