Suspended Ghanaian athlete, Martha Bissah met the Director-General for the National Sports Authority (NSA) Professor Peter Twumasi to discuss matters relating to her suspension by the Ghana Athletes Association (GAA).
Martha Bissah has been suspended indefinitely by the GAA since 2016 for accusing its officials headed by Professor Francis Dodoo in 2016 for indiscipline and peddling lies against the GAA.
The GAA has asked Martha Bissah to apologize before the ban is lifted.
The Olympic youth gold medalist has taken steps to ensure the ban is lifted by visiting former President John Mahama and the NSA boss Professor Peter Twumasi.
“Yesterday the National Sports Authority engaged Athlete Martha Bissah as part of efforts to secure a pardon and subsequent lifting of the over six-year suspension sanction from the Ghana Athletics Association”, the NSA boss indicated in a post.
“The Authority is in talks with both parties to arrive at amicable settlement to enable the athlete to return to the tracks. The Director-General was assisted by the Authority’s Counselling Unit led by Ms Stephanie Antonia Esshun”.
Bissah is Ghana’s only athlete who won gold at the girls’ 800m race at the Youth Olympic Game in 2014.
