"The work is a lot and the more people who are on board, the easier it will be for us all. It's been a long day but we thank God it's over and I wish you all a safe journey back home," the GAA President said.

Meanwhile, Dr. Silvanus L. Lamptey also retained his seat as the Vice President of the GAA after beating his challengers to become the new second in command of Ghana athletics.
