George Lamptey wants to land George Lamptey GOC 3rd Vice President in their upcoming election
George Lamptey, current 1st Vice President of the Ghana Boxing Federation (GBF) says he wants to contribute to the promotion and development of Ghanaian sports by getting elected as an executive member of the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC).
Mr. Lamptey who has been involved in boxing for over two and half decades and became the GBF executive three years ago after many years heading the Greater Accra Amateur Boxing Association is contesting for the position of 3rd Vice President of the GOC at their 2017 executive elections scheduled for March 15 in Accra.
It has been widely reported in the Ghanaian sports media that over a dozen and half sports associations have all thrown full weight behind Ghana Weightlifting Federation President, Ben Nunoo-Mensah to unseat incumbent Francis Dodoo to the GOC big post but George Lamptey is ready to work with everybody to propel Ghana sports forward.
Describing himself as a discerning listener and not just a hearer, George Lamptey says when elected, he will take a closer look at the GOC constitution and recommend possible amendments to suit modern trends.
The graduate of health administration from the University of Ghana who works as Taskforce Officer at the Ghana Airports Company Limited where he oversees all activities at the Kotoka International Airport in the Ghana capital is confident he can channel his massive health and security experience into the GOC's work to push the country's sports development to the very top.
"My background in health administration and security will enable me assist the president in dissemination of information and fair representation. I also seek to reinstate provision of welfare for our heroes in the association and sports in Ghana in general," George Lamptey said.
"I am a down-to-earth man with vision, leadership skills, a good communicator and very proactive in taking decisions. I will put all at the disposal of the GOC with the ultimate target of taking our sports heroes to international fame and glory. Let's work together for Mother Ghana," he added.
