The Ghana Bodybuilding and Fitness Association (GBFA) has called on the public to disregard a group called the World Amateur Body Building Association (WABBA) cautioning that, the GBFA is the only recognized and accredited body under the National Sports Authority (NSA).

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.
“We will therefore emphasise that the public should dissociate themselves from this association as any engagement with them will be at their own risk.
“In due time, the GBFA will come out with subsequent development in terms of the legality of this association and it's activities.
