The General Secretaries of WAFU Zones A & B are in Conakry, Guinea from July 12 – 13, 2017 to attend the Workshop on FIFA Forward Program designed to discuss issues relating to the implementation of the new Financial Assistance package to National Associations / Federations and Sub – confederations.
In the new framework, FIFA refers to the Zonal Unions as Sub-confederations that are slated to be subvented by the World Football governing body to the sum of USD1 million per year. This was a campaign pledge by the current FIFA President, Mr. Gianni Infantino.
The two General Secretaries, Mr. Aka Malan (above picture) and Mr. Jammeh E.K. Bojang will participate in the Workshop with delegates from all sixteen (16) CAF Members to discuss all the requisite guidelines in receiving and reporting all monies received by Zonal Unions and National Associations / Federations within this program.
Mr. Musengo – Omba Veron, Director of national Associations will also hold Group meetings with the various Member Associations & Federations as well as Zonal Unions present.
All delegations are now lodged at the NOOM Hotel after a rainstorm caused some havoc in the SHERATON Hotel. Workshop will be held at the RIVIERA hotel.
