MR. MAGNUS REXDANQUAH, an international sportbusiness consultant, land economist and appraiser, events architect, planner, manager and marketer has endorsed the candidature of Mr. RICHARD AKPOKAVIE for the Presidency of the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC) at its forthcoming Congress and elections on Monday, 15th March, 2021.
Mr. RexDanquah, the architect of Ghana’s successful bids for the rights to host and organize the CAN 2008 Football extravaganza and the 13th African Games to be hosted by Ghana in 2023, reiterated the fact that Ghana Sport is at a CROSSROADS, requiring a new style and paradigm of leadership to advance its pillars for growth and development. He stressed that Mr. Akpokavie is imbibed with the requisite consultative style needed by our nation at such a time as this.
He therefore urges all delegates of right standing to be mindful of the real issues facing us as a nation and to vote for Mr. AKPOKAVIE so that together with the other stakeholders, including the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the National Sports Authority (NSA) and the Parliamentary Select Committee for Youth, Culture and Sports as well as the performers, we would be able to consolidate and strengthen the sport industry for ourselves. He reiterated that this will be necessary if we are to restore our place at the top of the continental and global sport platform.
Mr. RexDanquah added that there are two major outstanding issues needing the urgent attention of all – the launching of a NATIONAL SPORT POLICY and the set up of the NATIONAL SPORT FUND – as two pillars requiring our attention after the Cobgress. “We cannot fail this time round”, he concluded and wished all delegates a successful congress.
