NEWLY-elected Fiji Football Association vice president Jainendra Sukhu has set his sights on implementing the corporate plans which have been sanctioned by world governing body FIFA to help improve the sport in the country.
Sukhu won the Southern Division seat after polling 60 per cent of the votes against incumbent Ravin Swamy during the elections at the Waterfront Hotel in Lautoka yesterday.
It was the only position that was contested after Iqbal Khan (West) and Hussein Sahib (North) had their nominations nullified.
This means Jitendra Kumar (West) and Girja Prasad (North) wil serve another four-year term.
Sukhu said the performance of the Fiji FA staff members had to be monitored carefully.
"When the FIFA technical officers are here they sit down with the Fiji FA officials and made corporate plans," Sukhu said.
"The implementation of the plan is very important. The aim will be to get the copies of the plans and put them into practice.
"I was a volunteer worker and then a part time employee of the Fiji FA. But now I'm an executive.
"I will be part of the decision and policy making together with the other executives. I will co-operate with them.
"We have to look at the performance of staff. If they don't perform then I will be the first person to move a motion to replace them.
"I have been with Fiji FA for a long time. I served the districts honestly when I was the secretary for the National League Board. This is why the districts have paid me back.
"They realise that I'm for them. I can take football to another level."
Sukhu started his playing career with the Raiwasa Club in the Suva competition in 1966.
He took up refereeing in the early 1970s and officiated at club and district level.
Sukhu was appointed as the Suva Football Association secretary in 1985 and then went on to become the vice-president.
He joined Fiji FA in 1988.
