Most national athletes of Ghana are in favour of the re-election of Mr Ben Nunoo Mensah as President of the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC).
In a survey conducted prior to the Elective Congress tentatively scheduled for March 15, 2021, it was discovered that almost all athletes, especially footballers, boxers, weight lifters, volleyball players, badminton players, hockey players, swimmers, judokas, karatekas, cyclists, disabled athletes want the incumbent to stay and continue his good works.
They claim he has done very well than his predecessor and they do not want Ghana Sports to be derailed or go backwards.
Christian Amoah and Winnifred Ntumi, both national weight lifters say Mr Ben Nunoo Mensah is a great motivator who has helped them to keep on performing in their discipline and could have stopped if it was not his support and encouragement.
“He has children, but he takes good care of us, we can’t afford to lose him,” said Ntumi.
Samuel Takyi, one of the two boxers who has qualified to represent Ghana at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games said: “Mr Nunoo Mensah is my new godfather as he helps me a lot, even on my birthday, he made me and my family happy. I think the delegates must vote for him. He is a very good man”.
Eben Amuzu, a sports journalist at Hot FM and Ashiaman TV said the works of Mr Ben Nunoo Mensah speaks a lot for him as he has chalked many successes and has a positive dream for Ghana Sports
