“We, the majority of the registered Members of Ghana Rugby and as such the body through which Board Members have been elected and appointed have no other option than to issue this statement following Mr. Herbert Mensah’s public utterances on the legality of his suspension.
“The facts of the matter is that Mr. Mensah has been suspended by a full quorum of the Ghana Rugby Board after a meeting of the Board requested by three Board Members in line with the Ghana Rugby Constitution that stipulated that the CEO has to call the meeting.
“It is important that this point, that the CEO must call the meeting, is the only grounds on which Mr. Mensah is claiming that his suspension is ”illegal”.
