Royals earn “Bragging Rights” in Maiden SIGA Jogging to Bond

The maiden edition of the SIGA Staff Jogging to Bond (JtoB) has come off on Friday 5th August,2022.


Over 100 staff of the State Interest and Governance Authority (SIGA) divided into four teams competed in various games at the Ghana Armed Forces Sports Complex in Burma Camp. The teams are Royals (Blue), Hunters (Green), Wakanda (Yellow) and Zulus (Red).

The games, designed by management to get staff out of their silos to bond and foster healthy working relationships threw up many surprises in football, sack race, lime and spoon, table tennis, tug-of-peace, 50 metres dash amongst others.

The ladies penalty shootout produced arguably the most excitement with two classic goals from the General Manager Operations, Madam Hollistar Duah-Yentumi for the Hunters. Her brilliance was taken a notch further by the Director-General, Amb. Edward Boateng, who held championship court by winning the table tennis competition and also led the Zulus to the finals of the Men’s football competition.

Wakanda and Zulus however failed to topple the Royals who seemed to be charged by the endless ‘Jama’ at the venue. Royals achieved the bragging rights by winning the 7-aside for men, the ladies sack race and ladies penalty shoot outs.

They topped the table with 24 points, followed by the Zulus with 20 points. The Hunters and Wakanda came third and fourth respectively with 15 and 9 points.

The Director-General, Amb. Edward Boateng said “we needed to come out here to get a different type of bond out of the office. It is by working together and being open to support each other that progress will be made. It is my hope that the zeal and energy we have exhibited today will also be felt at the office for work to go on smoothly”.

The SIGA jogging to bond was graced by Mr. Franklin Asafo-Adjei, a member of the SIGA board and the former MD of ECG, Mr. Kwame Agyeman-Budu.

Madam Alexandra Totoe and  Madam Olivia Opoku-Adoma assisted the Director-General with the awards presentations.

The event was sponsored by GIHOC distilleries company limited with the provision of water and drinks (as prizes) for the winning teams.
