Black Stars Management Committee vice chairman Wilfred Osei Palmer has taken a swipe at Ghana Athletics Association president Prof Francis Dodoo for such an indefinite ban on Ghana’s priced assert Martha Bisah and has called for the restoration of her status as a national athlete.
He however holds that the Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah and Ghana Olympic Committee president Ben Nunoo Mensah cannot be blamed for not seeing to the lifting of the ban since it will only amount to interference because she was banned by an association.
The youth Olympics gold medalist has been banned indefinitely by the Ghana Athletics Association (GAA), preventing her from competing in any event under the Ghanaian flag.
Speaking on Anopa Bosuo Sports on Happy FM, the football guru noted that the Ghana Athletics Association (GAA) boss Professor Francis Dodoo does not listen to advice and hence has turned a deaf ear to the cry of Ghanaians to lift the ban from the young athlete.
“Prof Duodoo does not take advice. If he does he wouldn’t ban the girl indefinitely. He should consider the paramount interest of Ghanaians and lift the ban from Martha for the love of the game.” Osei Palmer beseeched.
The bank roller of Tema youth FC thinks, Prof Duodoo must lift the ban from Martha because his successor might suffer for this act.
“If Prof. Dodoo fails to lift the ban, he’ll be cited for contributing to the girls failures in her professional pursuit, if it so happens.” Palmer added.
“It will however be unfair for us to blame the Sports minister and the GOC president for not doing anything about the girls ban because any such action will mount to interference since she was banned by an association.” Osei Palmer told Happy FM.
