The Ghana Athletics Association (GAA) Executive Committee has finally lifted the indefinite suspension placed on Martha Bissah for misconduct six years ago.
The Executive Committee met on Friday, November 26, to deliberate Martha Bissah’s unqualified apology letter sent to the GAA and the former President, Professor Francis Dodoo.
At the end of the EXCO meeting, the GAA and Prof. Dodoo accepted Martha Bissah’s unqualified apology and lifted the indefinite suspension on her with immediate effect and welcomed her back to the discipline in Ghana.
In a statement signed by General Secretary Bawa Fuseini, the EXCO also agreed that, it would engage with Martha to fashion out the way forward in getting her back to competitive races.
The GFA looks forward to Martha competing in our imminent domestic competitions begining in early 2022, and to discussing with Martha ways in which we can help advance her personal and athletic goals as we do for our other athletes.
The GAA expressed gratitude to the Minister of Youth and Sports, Mustapha Yussif for this maturity in handling the issue and to Prof. Peter Twumasi, the Director General of the National Sports Authority (NSA) for his intervention.
