The GOC election scheduled for Wednesday, March 15, at the Alisa Hotel in Accra, will see either a continuation for the incumbent or a change to elect Mr. Nunoo Mensah, as the leader for a period of four years.

Ahead of the much awaited election, Mr. Nunoo-Mensah launched an ambitious campaign to lead the GOC.

Part of the key areas he outlined to achieve is to create a transparent and accountable GOC, which will see to the involvement of all key stakeholders, from the board to sub-committee level.

The GWF President also highlighted the need to acquiring a modern and well-furnished structure by lobbying the Ministry of Works and Housing, to serve as its secretariat and will be named the Olympic House”, whilst efforts will be made at lobbying the President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to visit Ghana.
