If the National Sports Authority (NSA) is organising a national championships and they are saying that they wont invite the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) Athletics Team then none of our athletes will also take part in any of their competitions.

“We are ever ready to be part of their event and if they invite us we all come on our own. GAF has the capacity to provide for its own accommodation and transportation. We just want to be part of the race because we have a lot of athletes in our camp now” he said.

According to them they are not happy with the situation and the purpose of recruiting these athletes is to prepare them for national competitions and now why are they silencing them to take part in a national race.

He also stated that the history of the cross country started when he ‘Coach Moro‘ was an athlete and they use to invite all the regions and the security services, all the universities and it was sponsored by Milo.

“Even if the Milo sponsorship is no more and anybody who has come on board to help to promote sports. I think he has to involve all of us but not to depend on the regions alone, or schools alone and leave us. The perception of others seeing the security services athletes’ as old is not the true. We have some of the youngest athletes in the country and they are the vary ones we recruited from the regions”, he said.

According to Coach Moro, about 90% of their athletes just completed either senior high schools or the tertiary whilst others are still in school, so they are very energetic and the best in the country.

“As the head coach of the Ghana Armed Forces Athletics Team, I’m not happy at all about the decision of the National Sports Authority for we not taking part”, he added

“But we are opened and if they invite us we will come in our numbers”, he disclosed.

“I have the believe that for we taking part will put more light and it will make the race more competitive and the authorities will see the difference. If it is because of transportation and accommodation that they are sidelining us,  we can do all by ourselves. All that we want is to take part in the competition”, he emphasised
