first_imgThe Chief Executive of the National Sports Council, (NSC) Wolanyo Agra has rebuffed reports that he has exceeded the retirement age of 60 years.Agra told GNA Sports that he has not attained the compulsory retirement age as is being speculated in certain quarters, insisting that he is approaching his 58th birthday.“I wish to put on record that I’m not 60 years of age as alleged; I was born on September 24, 1952.”The NSC Chief Executive dared anyone who doubted his claim to check the records at Achimota School, where he had his secondary education decades ago.“You can go to Achimota School and check from the records,” he said, adding “I have been in sports for a long time and my records are there for all to see.”Agra also dismissed reports of a power struggle between him and the Board Chairman of the NSC, Kojo Bonsu, insisting that the allegations are plans by some individuals to create tension between the two of them. “I have no time for little minds. There has never been any power struggle between the Board Chairman and myself at any point.”Agra added that he has never accused the Board Chairman of deleting names of key NSC staff from the South Africa World Cup trip.“Those who think that there is trouble between the Board Chairman and me (Agra) are shouting wolf when there is none.”“For me, I think the enemies are doing this just to derail the good work we are doing at the National Sports Council.”Agra assured that he is committed to the development of sports in the country and would not be detracted by such reports. Agra replaced Prince Ernest Oduro-Mensah as the Chief Executive of the NSC in 2009.Source: GNAlast_img
