It added, “The Authority has absolutely no doubt in your commitment, competence, and leadership skills to inspire the Newly Elected Executives to work harder and steer the affairs of Africa Rugby with the sincerest hope that Rugby in Africa will blossom under your able leadership to the delight of all.

“We look forward to Journey with you in your new role. Congratulations once again and continue to make Mother Ghana and the Sporting fraternity Proud. We wish you a very successful Term of Office.”

Rugby Africa held its elective Annual General Meeting on Saturday, March 18 in Cape Town, South Africa.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
