Ghana Athletics Association  boss Professor Francis Dodoo is set to resign from his post before his tenure in office is over in November 2018.

The former national athlete was early this year appointed the second Pro Vice Chancellor of the University of Ghana and it is believed his latest development is the reason behind his decision to step down.

Prof Dodoo’s appointment took effect from January 1, 2017 and he will serve as the second Pro-Vice Chancellor of the university alongside Professor Kwame Ofei who is the Pro-Vice Chancellor in charge of Academic and Student Affairs.

The former national athlete replaces Professor John Owusu Gyapong who was appointed the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS) in Ho last year.

Professor Francis Doodo has come under huge criticisms in recent years for not doing enough to resurrect the dwindling fortunes of athletics in the country.

Our Sources within the Ghana Athletics Association has it that Professor Francis Doodo who recently recently lost the Ghana Olympic Committee seat to Ben Nunoo Mensah will call it a quit after the Associations last circuit in Cape Coast later in the year.

The retired Ghanaian athlete competed in the long jump and triple jump winning the triple jump gold medal at the 1987 All-Africa Games Nairobi, Kenya.

Dodoo also won a silver medal at the 1992 African Championships in Mauritius.

His best placement in the Olympic Games was a 17th place from 1988 in Seoul, South Korea.
