In a statement issued and signed by the Administrator of the federation, Mr Kenneth Odeng Adade, and copied GNA Sports said the meeting would be attended by the various decision makers of the fastest growing sport in the country and would be used to address the future of the sport.
The statement said, “the Executive Committee of the Federation would use the opportunity to officially congratulate the President, Mr Charles Osei Asidey on his elevation as the President and Vice President of the Armwrestling Federation of Africa and World Armwrestling Federation respectively”.
It also said on the agenda at the AGM would be the developmental strategy of the federation with respect to establishing more regional associations to make up for the 16 regions in the country.
