The Management of the National Sports Authority (NSA) has cautioned Mr. Joshua Mensah, the Ashanti Regional Director of the NSA over pronouncements he made on the usage of the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, Kumasi.
The decision was taken at an emergency management meeting at the head office in which Mr. Mensah, was summoned to explain to management in the presence of all the other Regional Directors, as to why he made such unauthorized pronouncements.
A release copied to GNA Sports noted that “Management agreed that he indeed erred and it was an administrative slip on his part and hence was cautioned in accordance with the NSA’s Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA)”.
According to the release “Mr Joshua Mensah was asked to follow administrative procedures, whenever he has suggestions and proposals to present to the Authority”.
The Authority further urged the general public to disregard the pronouncements made by the Regional Director and noted of its commitment to enhancing and developing sports in the country saying “we would like to reiterate our commitment to the development of sports which is our core mandate”.
Mr. Joshua Mensah had made certain comments that the Baba Yara Sports Stadium would be closed to sporting activities on Saturdays to make way for funerals and other social activities on Saturdays without any authorization, which prompted the Deputy Minister for Youth and Sports Mr. Pius Enam Hadzide to summon him to Accra to explain why “he should not be sanctioned” for making public comments of such serious nature without authorization
