The Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia on Friday 3rd May 2019, cut sod for work to commence on a multipurpose sports centre in the Northern Region.
The centre is the first of six such projects to be constructed for all six garrisons of the Ghana Armed Forces in fulfilment of a pledge by H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo in October 2018.
The edifice would boost among others of a FIFA standard size Football pitch, VIP box, Media box, Pressroom, sanitary facilities, a 400m Hockey pitch, IAAF Standard 8 lane running tracks around the field, a standard size lawn tennis court, a combined Volleyball and Basketball court, a multi-purpose hall (Gymnasium) for indoor games, two therapeutic/aromatic gardens, and offices.
Government is committed to sports development and determined to revive Ghana sports at all levels and in all spheres to reclaim past glories and attain relevance in the global sporting fraternity.
