Meanwhile, the elected Vice President and elected Board Member, Mr. James Nunoo has been appointed by the board to act as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman.
A Special General Meeting, where a new Board will be constituted either by election or appointment is expected to be organized on June 8, 2021, the statement added.
Prior to his appointment as President of Ghana Rugby, Mensah was appointed to the executive of the Greater Accra Rugby Association (GARA) in May 2014.
