Politician, Mr Edward Nii Lante Bannerman has been elected as the new President of the Ghana Handball Association.

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," he stated.

Mr Nii Lante Bannerman polled 26 out of the total 37 votes cast with Paul Kofi Yesu polling 10 votes with 1 rejected ballot.

Mr Bannerman furthermore welcomed help from all quarters of the handball association as they look to host major competitions soon.

“Handball in Ghana should be able to get to the level it is expected to be. This is not a win for me, but for handball, and I will plead with everyone to come on board. Handball is a team sport and with them coming on board, I believe it would take a different shape in Ghana," he said.

Other members elected to spearhead the activities of the handball association for the next four years include Amma Frimpongmaa (2nd Vice President), William Ghartey (Executive Member) and Philip Longdon (Executive Member), among others.

There would be another election for the position of the Ist Vice President and Treasurer as both unopposed candidates couldn't reach the majority threshold of 50 plus one.
