Mfantsipim Old Boys Association (MOBA) has elected new national executives to steer the affairs of the Association for the next three (3) years.
In a statement issued by MOBA secretariat to the media on Tuesday, July 21, 2015 in Accra, it said the election which was done in May this year had two representatives each from all year groups.
The yet-to-be inducted MOBA national executives, the statement said, are; Ebusuapanyin Captain Paul Forjoe-Vice President, Emmanuel Kotey Hammond -Secretary, Kofi Bentum Colema- Vice Secretary and James Morgan- Treasurer.
The rest are Parry Aboagye- Vice Treasurer, Kofi Amaniampong – National Organizer, Charles Cobbina Vice -National Organizer, Kwesi Wilson- Member and Kwame Gyasi also a Member.
Speaking to the media on behalf of the new executives on Tuesday, July 21, 2015, the president- elect, Captain Paul Forjoe, said, they would make the development of the school and the Association their priority.
The Mfantsipim brand, the president-elect said, “is solid and it is God’s gift to them therefore, we are going to nurture the brand, grow it and always keep it strong”.
And that, he said could only be achieved through unity and purposefulness on the part of the new executives.
He added that, the new MOBA NEC was committed to ensuring that, the Association was financially viable to meet all its targets.
“…to be strong, we have to be financially stable with a sound strategy for financial growth”, he said.
He explained that, a financially strong MOBA would make it easier for them to support the school, sponsor projects, support old boys and promote teacher and learning programmes.
He hinted that one of the tools the NEC would implore will be the creation of Endowment Fund which he said is a mandatory in the MOBA Constitution.
He indicated that such fund would l help MOBA diversify its income and reduce its donor dependency.
He hinted that the Vice President, Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur and the former Methodist Bishop of Kumasi, Rt. Rev. Dr. Nuh Ben Abubekr, will be in attendance at the induction ceremony.
The newly -elected MOBA executives would be officially inducted into office on Sunday, July 26, 2015 at the Calvary Methodist Church in Adabraka in Accra.
