The Minister (3rd R) inspecting one of the facilities recently
Youth and Sports Minister Isaac Kwame Asiamah has expressed satisfaction with the progress of work so far at the Ho and Koforidua Multi-Purpose Youth Centers.
The Minister and his entourage left the two centres-Ho and Koforidua early this week after inspection; and he was impressed with works on the projects.
To him, the government was keen on living a lasting legacy regarding sports development through infrastructure, hence the construction of the Multi-Purpose Youth Centers across the country.
In a post-inspection interview, he said “I am happy with the kind of work I have seen, the most important parts, which are the structural erections are good and looks promising.
“Stadium development is a process and this center has the required land for extensions to be done at any given time, which could see the 5,000 capacity being extended further.”
Each Multi-Purpose Youth Center houses over 15 sporting disciplines including basketball, handball and tennis court, as well as an eight-lane tartan track, ICT center, counseling center, entrepreneurship center and a FIFA standard pitch.
It is aimed at creating more avenues for harnessing world champions for Ghana in the future.
