Suspend GHABSA Congress – Concerned Coaches / Trainers

Concern Baseball and Softball Coaches and Trainers of various clubs in the country have petitioned the National Sports Authority (NSA) to put on hold tomorrow’s congress of the Ghana Baseball and Softball Association (GHABSA).

According to the group, the outgoing executive did not follow laid down procedures in identifying delegates to vote in what is supposed to be the second national delegate’s congress of GHABSA.

This was contained in a petition copied to the Chief Sports Development Officer (CSDO) of the NSA and the Secretary General of GHABSA and signed by Emmanuel Boafo, leader of the group.

“We will not accept the arrangement lay down by the GHABSA Executives for the congress. It does not follow procedures used at previous congress.”

“During  the 2010 congress, all active and known baseball and softball clubs in the country were invited to participate in the elections but four years on only selected clubs have been given the right to vote. “ The group described the move as unconstitutional and undemocratic.

The group stated that there is no clause or article in the constitution which states that clubs should nominate candidates to be vetted for position as adopted by the illegal interim executive.

“We are of the view that the right mechanisms have not been put in place for the elections. In the light of this we implore your venerable office to suspend the elections until the right things are done to have a fair and peaceful election.
