On Saturday, at #wesleygrammar School (my Alma Mater), many converged to play Armwrestling.
As I sat to watch proceedings to the end in the presence of my leadership, friends and visitors from the diplomatic corps, I concluded that Ghana Armwrestling has come far by Preparation, Perseverance, People and Grace.
I feel elated that the brand we introduced is being packaged to become a super-brand and a sport of choice.
Pullers from the #Ghana Police Service, Ghana Immigration Service, the Clubs, Teams Ashanti, Northern, Central Western and Bono were resolute and promising that gave me verbbering hope.
The expression on the faces of my pullers was dire, desirous and conquering. They love they’re chosen sport and I pray the Good Lord and Ghana rewards them soon. Despite the enormous challenges, the tell me “President, the boys are OK”.
Ghana will host and win the upcoming Africa Championship, I know because our pullers are awesomely passionate, our coaches are committed and referees, topnotch.
Thanks to Kofikrom Pharmacy, Twellium Industries, Wadada Ventures, Royal Dach, Swaggers Restaurant, 442GH, Blynkxlivegh and my hardworking IOC Team led by Ken Adade, Nii Otoo Larkyne and Shardrack Appiah.
