Ryan Dey has returned for his second consecutive term as President of the Guyana Rugby Football Union, with his first priority to rectify the missing financial statements for the union.
The Guyana Rugby Football Union (GRFU) on Saturday, February 26th held their Annual General Meeting and Elections of a new Executive Committee.
Ryan Dey maintained his post as President alongside Senior Vice-President Joshua Griffith and Junior Vice-President Kevon David.
The post of Secretary is currently vacant but will be filled at the first meeting of the new Executive body.
At the AGM, audited financial statements for the period 2020 to 2022 were missing.
He noted that the executive Treasurer of the 2018-2020 term has refused to hand over financial documentation to the auditors, to have the process completed.
Dey’s statement reads as follows:
“We cannot do an audited financial statement because the union before us, that in 2018-2019, haven’t supplied us with the relevant documents for us to go to the auditing firm so that they can audit those books then audit ours. Our books are intact, but we need succession. It cannot be; you skip two years then do our two years. You need to have the relevant documents from the previous years in order for us to have an audited financial statement, Now, we will be pursuing the personnel/persons from the previous union to get these documents so that we can be financially audited and show our transparency when it comes to spending money in our union.”
Current executive body:
President - Ryan Dey
Senior Vice-President - Joshua Griffith
Junior Vice-President - Kevon David
Treasurer - Troy Yhip
Assistant Secretary-Treasurer - Marie Roberts
Public Relations Officer- Godfrey Broomes
