Lamptey: Samir Captanís administration was ousted through a Coup díetat

Former spokesperson of Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA) Mohammed Amin Lamptey has described as traitors certain personalities in the boxing fraternity who masterminded the exit of Samir Captanís administration.

Those suspected to be behind the ejection from office are messers Jonas Ahine Truly and R. O. Lamptey.

Acting Director General of National Sports Authority Alice Attipoe ordered the Samir Captan-led administration of the Ghana Boxing Authority to hand over all articles from their office last Friday January 11, 2013, to the NSA to pave way for elections to be held to select the executives who will run the association since their term of office has been expired for a year.

Speaking on Asempa FMís Sports world show on Saturday, Amin Lamptey indicated that information he has gathered from the NSA shows that Madam Alice Attipoe was pressured by the two traitors, Mr. Jonas Ahine Truly and R. O. Lamptey, to write that particular letter to them because of their selfish interest.

He noted that the Samir Captan-led administration of the Ghana Boxing Authority did not hand over the items because even the outgoing Minister of Youth and Sports and Minister designate for Agriculture Hon. Clement Kofi Humado knows nothing about the letter written to them by the NSA boss.

He stressed further that Ahine Truly and R. O. Lamptey want the Samir Captan-led administration to leave in order to pave way for them to continue their visa fraud business because they have not had the opportunity to do so under his administration.

According to the former Spokesperson for the GBA, a huge burden has been taken off their backs and they are ever ready to hand over to any authority provided things are done rightly.

In a related issue, Chief Sports Development Officer of National Sports Authority Mr. Erasmus Adorkor told Asempa Sports last week that the NSA inaugurated a 5-man committee last Thursday to come out with a road map and a constitution to guide a democratic election of new executives to manage the GBA.

The committee is under the leadership of retired referee Judge Mr. J.A Annan, Referee Fred Ghartey, former boxer Ragbon Duodu, R. O. Lamptey and Mr. Ignatius Elletey as secretary for the committee.

According to him, a stakeholders meeting will be called to deliberate on the committeeís above-mentioned recommendations before the election is held in one month.

Meanwhile, the 5-man committee has hit the ground running, going about their business since last Monday.
