Mr Isaac Kwame Asiamah, the Minister for Youth and Sports, has commended Mr Benjamin Ngoswini, the contractor for the multipurpose sports centre of excellence at Navrongo for a good work done so far.
A visit to the Navrongo site last Tuesday revealed that four spectator stands had been erected, with the contractor promising to complete the project in April.
The minister told the media after inspecting the facility that “the contractor is on point”, adding that he was impressed me with his quality of work.
“We want the facility to stand the test of time; generations unborn should benefit from this facility.
“Sports and the youth are two of the government’s topmost priorities, hence this facility. We will do more; this is just the beginning of the many things the government has for the youth and sports,” Mr Asiamah said.
The Navrongo project is among 10 of such facilities spread across the country which comprise a FIFA standard football field, athletics tracks, volley and basketball courts, ICT and counselling centres and a restaurant.
The minister and Mr Emmanuel Asigri, the CEO of the National Youth Authority, have so far inspected the ongoing projects in the Volta, Eastern, Central, Ashanti, Western, Brong Ahafo, Upper West and Northern regions.
Mr Asiamah is set to inspect ongoing work at Yendi in the Northern Region and at Kaneshie in the Greater Accra Region.
