Dissolve Inactive Associations…Urges A/R Sports Director as NSA boss tours stadia in Ash,BA, Gt. Acc regions.

ClngDirector of Sports in the Ashanti region, Saka Acquaye believes it is about time the National Sports Authority took the bull by the horn to dissolve inactive associations.

Thirty-eight sporting Associations are under the National Sports Authority.

With the exception of the notable ones, such as boxing, swimming, athletics, weightlifting and the likes, the other disciplines have failed to produce any meaningful results both locally and international.

And this has angered Saka Acquaye who says he will consult the Director General of the National Sports Authority to dissolve some of the ailing associations under the sports authority, reports Sportscrusader.com.

“We have a lot of the Associations that are not active at all; as at now, we have 38 Associations, and even as at now, some other unknown associations are still chasing us for confirmation.

“It’s about time we see and dissolve those associations that are not working; they do complimentary cards, call themselves presidents and general secretaries and they do nothing. You call them for meeting and they don’t show up, it’s about time I speak to Mr. Kpenga to see the way forward for some of these associations.”

Meanwhile,Director General of the National Sports Authority, Joe Kpenga has brought his one week tour of the Baba Yara Sports Stadium and the Sunyani Coronation Park to an end this week.

According to sources, the Director General, who took office just some few months ago, wants to bring an end to the numerous challenges the various stadia in the country have been plagued with.

At the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, the Director General was briefed about the faulty flood lights and issues with some rusting metals, whiles he received a report on the replacement of the seats at the Coronation Park.

The Accra Sports Stadium, which needs massive facelift will be inspected by a team of experts together with the Director General in the coming days.

The National Sports Authority has received massive criticism from the general public for mishandling the Accra Sports Stadium since its rehabilitation in 2008.
