The Director General of the National Sports Authority (NSA), Prof. Peter Twumasi, says the demise of Mr Saka Acquaye, a former NSA Deputy Director General (Technical), has shaken the foundation of sports development in the country.
Prof. Twumasi noted that the impact of his deputy’s death would hugely affect the growth of sports in the country.
“It is a very huge loss; we have been shaken. It will hugely affect the NSA because he was a huge sports developer,’’ he told Daily Graphic in an interview.
He has been sick for a while but this comes as a big blow to us.
He was a pillar in sports development in the country; he reintroduced the National Cross-Country at Mpohor and the implementation of many sports initiatives. We have lost a colossus.
He disclosed that a delegation from the NSA had been sent to his house to formally commiserate with the family.
