Charles Amofa the Professional of the NSA clarified in an job interview with Rainbow Radio that the GBFA remains the only institution accredited by the sports activities authority to undertake activities in that aspect of Ghana’s athletics.
Charles Amofa stated that GBFA is between about forty federations accredited by the NSA.
“I want to very clear the air on bodybuilding. For every discipline, the NSA acknowledges only one group. What we have on our desk is GBFA which is affiliated to the IFAB. We have been working with them around the yrs. So if some group are performing their issue then it’s a non-public initiative which is not recognized by the NSA”.
“There are over 44 federations less than the NSA. We really don’t have two or more institutions for any sport in Ghana. When it comes to bodybuilding, we only understand the GBFA and not any other establishment.
He rejected claims by a team calling by itself World Amateur Bodybuilding Affiliation, Ghana (WABBA) that it has certification from the NSA to arrange bodybuilding events.
Amofa stated that a great deal as the NSA can not cease WABBA from using initiative, they (WABBA) simply cannot act in an official ability or represent Ghana in any intercontinental opposition.
“So considerably as the NSA is anxious, we have not granted certification to any federation apart GBFA. It is in no way real that we have endorsed any other team. Any federation that is not recognized by the NSA functions as a private institution. Officially we have 44 federations and GBFA is the only bodybuilding institution”, he reported.
Amofa was manufactured to make this clarification soon after a documented clash between GBFA and WABBA more than their position as the formal and only regarded bodybuilding establishment in Ghana.
Officials of WABBA are explained to be priding themselves as the group mandated to manage bodybuilding.
It has been described that about the weekend WABBA held an party which has prompted the NSA to occur out and length itself from it.
