Basketball: Braves for Benin Feb 6

The basketball team of the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), Braves, will leave Accra Thursday, next week, to participate in the West Africa top eight basketball competition in Benin.

The three-day competition, which comes on the heels of a recently-orgnaised hockey tournament in Angola, which saw the GRA team winning bronze, will attract teams from Togo, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Niger, Liberia and Benin.

The Sports Director of the GRA, Mr Benjamin Baafi, told the Daily Graphic that Braves, who have remained unbeaten for 14 years, won silver at the last edition of the competition and were well psyched up to win gold this time around.

Mr Baafi was happy with the commitment of the players of the GRA, majority of whose appointments, he said, were yet to be regularised, and appealed to the leadership of the authority to initiate measures to employ those players.

That, Mr Baafi said, would serve as motivation for the players to remain committed to the cause of the organisation.

According to him, even after playing for almost a decade without being engaged as full employees, majority of the players continued to put in their best to project the image of the organisation.

Mr Baafi, however, expressed appreciation to the leadership of CEPS in particular and GRA as a whole for their support and immense contribution to the respective teams and gave an assurance that they would continue to work hard to bring honours and also to grow the image of the organisation.
