GBFA release statement on Mr. Ghana competition


The Ghana Bodybuilding and Fitness Association (GBFA) has released a statement in regards to the World Amateur Body Builders Association (WABBA) Ghana’s ‘Mr Ghana’ Fitness and Bodybuilding show which is currently holding auditions at Fitrip Ghana in Accra.


The statement which is signed by Acting Communications Director of the association, George Fausta Baffoe, have denounced the competition saying that the Ghana Bodybuilding and Fitness Association is the only recognised bodybuilding association in the country.

“The Ghana Bodybuilding and Fitness Association is the ONLY body accredited by the National Sports Authority under the Ministry of Youth and Sports, mandated to Control all activities and see to the development of Bodybuilding in Ghana.” The statement read

“The GBFA wants to state that, it does not recognize any body or association called WABBA and as a result we will like to inform the public to dissociate themselves from any association not recognized by the GBFA.”

“It has come to the notice of the GBFA that this Association [WABBA] is coming up with an event called ‘Mr Ghana’. We would like to inform the media and the public that, the Ghana Bodybuilding and Fitness Association’s flagship event which is the Nation’s biggest and most celebrated Bodybuilding championship is called MAN GHANA and not Mr Ghana.”
