The Ghana Cycling Federation held its Extra ordinary meeting on November 19.

The AGM was organized physically and virtually to finally approve its amended constitution which has already been given the green light for operations in its upcoming activities.

The Congress which came off at the conference room of the Ghana Olympic committee among the twenty-six (26) clubs in Ghana, saw fifteen (15) clubs representing physically with four (4) clubs joining via Zoom link. Seven(7) clubs were absent.

The twenty-six cycling clubs were from various regions in Ghana, North East, Northern, Savana, BA, Ashanti, Volta, Eastern, Central, Western, and Greater Accra, three clubs from three regions (Oti, Upper East, and Upper West) application is ready for congress approval.

Secretary General of the Ghana Cycling Federation Dennis Kweku Moore chaired the meeting in the absence of President Mohammed Sahnoon Esq who had to respond to an emergency at the eleventh hour.

Members perused the document and made some changes to be referred to the world cycling body UCI for insertion.

In finality, the amended constitution was agreed to be used for the future and upcoming Congress.

Members applauded the three-member constitutional review committee of GCF and the UCI legal team for the constitutional document, especially concerning making room for regional representation.

The significant change in the constitution is how, for the first time in the history of the Sport, a Management Committee would be in place. This committee would be drawn from four elected persons from the nation, one elected person from each region of the country where cycling club/s represent, and some appointments including athletes representative on both regular cycling and Para-cycling.

It is therefore expected to see more than 20 Management members in the new administration who, in turn, would appoint/elect officers to run the Federation after the 2022 elective congress slated for Wednesday 28th December this year.
