Ramesh Ramdhan on his candidacy:
“I am committed to country. I offered myself for national development at the constituency level and now I plan to do so through football…
“With the right governance and support T&T football can stand on its own… putting monies into the coffers of Trinidad and Tobago, not taking out…
“Rebuilding the brand is a key aspect of generating investment. The TTFA brand must be redefined through high levels of technical competency and consistency in how the game is played.
“Unless we do this, any gains achieved will be short-lived, because no business wants to associate with any organisation that may bring their brand into disrepute. We have to fix the plane while it’s flying, so we will immediately re-engineer and reposition the new TTFA as an organisation that is rooted in honesty, integrity and transparency and one through which a comprehensive world-class training programme is deployed .”
“What’s more, I am available full-time to give the presidency and the resuscitation of football in T&T my all.
“Unlike other candidates, I don’t have a vested interest in football. I have no existing conflicts associated with ownership of a club and I’m not distracted by other responsibilities to local office that can compromise my delivery…
“It’s time to make a clean break with the past – new leadership, fresh faces, fresh philosophy.”
