Mr. Amos Korvah, the acting president of the Liberia National Table Tennis Association (LNTTA) won its last Saturday’s presidential elections, beating Aaron Nawuoh, 44-8 votes.
Mr. Korvah served as vice president under the late Lord Brownell, and began ‘acting’ as president since 2012.
The election put to rest his stand-in leadership and agitation from a handful of members about the lack of financial reports which led to the postponement of election twice in 2013.
Mr. Wennie Klimeth won the vice presidency, beating Narnue Davis 23-19 votes with Celestine King, receiving 10 votes.
Secretary General Lamin Freeman was unopposed. The Assistant Secretary General position went to Gregory Ebulue and Anita Williams got the Financial Secretary position.
The president in consultation with the Executive Committee will appoint the Chaplain and Treasurer.
Meanwhile, president-elect Korvah said his leadership will amend the constitution regarding their tenure, from two (2) to four (4) years in accordance with the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) Statutes.
He said his administration will also strive to foster peace and unity amongst the 52 members, complete the renovation of their headquarters at the Sports Commission on Broad Street and continue to take table tennis to schools and communities as way of decentralizing the game.
“We are planning a colorful installation program and we hope to invite every stakeholder, including President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and the Chinese Ambassador,” Korvah said.
