Suspension of Mr. Herbert Mensah as Board Chairman and
CEO of Ghana Rugby

The Board of Ghana Rugby hereby fulfill the unfortunate and unenviable task to inform all
its Stakeholders that the Chairman and CEO of Ghana Rugby has been suspended
indefinitely as both Chairman and as CEO at a Board Meeting held on 11 May 2021 via
Zoom in accordance with the regulations of its Constitution.

Mr James N.A. Nunoo (Elected Vice President and Elected Board Member: CentWest)
has been appointed as Acting Chairman and Acting CEO of Ghana Rugby by the Board
and a Special General Meeting (SGM) has been called for 8 June 2021 when a new
Board will be elected and appointed.

The Board wishes to assure all its Stakeholders including players, clubs, supporters,
sponsors and governing bodies that the affairs of Ghana Rugby will continue without
disruption in the best interest of Ghana, Ghana Rugby and Rugby in general.

“Rugby is our love and passion and Rugby must emerge as the winner from this
unfortunate moment in the history of Ghana Rugby,” Mr. Nunoo said.

He continued to ask all stakeholders and especially players and clubs to refrain from
speculation or unsubstantiated „news‟ or comments to the media and on Social Media
platforms and ensured everybody that all Stakeholders will be fully informed of
developments.
Mr. Nunoo also expressed his appreciation to all those who have supported Ghana
Rugby in the past and all those who are still supporting Ghana Rugby to continue to do
so.

“Ghana Rugby has achieved memorably under the leadership of Mr. Mensah and a solid
platform has been laid to build on that foundation. For that we thank him,” he said.
To soar to greater heights the Ghana Eagles will, however, need the continued and
increased support from our governing bodies and sponsors. For that we thank them in
advance,” Mr. Nunoo said.
