Distinguished politician Mr Edward Nii Lante Bannerman has been elected as the new President of the Ghana Handball Association(HAG).
Speaking to the media after emerging victorious Mr Nii Lante Bannerman in the elections called on aspirants who lost the elections to come on board and take Ghana Handball Association to the next level.
“At long last, it is Handball that has won and we will need everyone on board to take Ghana Handball Association back to its glory. We are going to implement a lot of measures in place to ensure we develop handball in the country and make sure it gains much attention in the media”.
Mr Nii Lante Bannerman polled 26 out of the total 37 votes cast with Paul Kofi Yesu who also contested as the President getting only 10 votes with 1 being rejected.
