NSA boss Prof. Twumasi denies knowledge of GAA congress
Sports News of Thursday, 15 August 2019
The Director-General of the National Sports Authority (NSA), Professor Peter Twumasi, has dismissed speculations that the Ghana Athletics Association (GAA) is scheduled for congress on August 17.
“It is not true, I have not been informed about anything. If there is going to be a congress they must write officially to inform the NSA. As I speak to you there has been no such letter,” he told Graphic Sports Online on August 15 via a telephone conversation.
Speculations have been rife over the past few days that the GAA will organise an elective congress in Tamale on Saturday, August 17, with some regional athletics coaches and executives being informed by the former General Secretary, Bawa Fuseini, to get prepared for congress.
This follows the dismissal of an injunction suit earlier placed on the congress by some interested parties last month.
However, Prof. Twumasi hinted that the focus was now on the upcoming Africa Games and not any discipline’s congress.
“We are focused on the games. I will be departing with the last batch of athletes later this week. There is no thought of any congress,” he told this medium.
