The Comptroller General of the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) has committed to recruiting the five civilian members of the Ghana Armwrestling Team who collectively won 41 of Ghana’s 69 medals at the African Games.

Kwame Asuah Takyi has also assured that he will promote two immigration officers who were members of the Armwrestling team and the deputy coach of the Black Princesses team, which won gold in the women’s football competition in Africa.

The five civilian members of the arm wrestling team, comprising of officers from the Ghana Police Service and the Ghana Immigration Service, are Yasmine Moro, who won a silver and a bronze medals; Blessed Nunoo, who won two gold medals; Rashida Abbass, who claimed a silver medal; Mary Quaye, who won a silver and a bronze medals; and Godwin Sackey, who won a gold and bronze medals.

The arm wrestling team was led by GIS officers head coach ICO Nii Otoo Larkyne and captain Edward Yamoah, with DSI Anita Wiredu Mintah serving as the deputy coach of the Black Princesses.

The Comptroller General of the GIS, Kwame Asuah Takyi, made this announcement when the leadership of the Ghana Armwrestling Federation (GIF) and some athletes paid a courtesy call on him at the GIS Headquarters in Accra on Friday (April 5, 2023). The visit was to officially present the medals to the Comptroller General of the GIS.
