Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah says the infrastructure projects currently being undertaken by his outfit is an “intervention” that will go a long way to save the future sports in Ghana.
The Ministry of Youth and Sports is embarking on the establishment of multipurpose sports facilities in each of the ten regions of the country.
Ghana has over the years performed abysmally at international competitions with the recent one being the commonwealth games, where Ghana won only a bronze medal at the multi-sports event.
But the Minister believes the future is bright once these projects are completed and the facilities are put in use.
“Ghana over the years has not invested much in sports that is why we are getting these abysmal performances and so we need to intervene to save the situation.
“And we can only do this through initiatives like these so we can have quality sporting infrastructures that can prepare our athletes well for international tournaments,” Hon. Asiamah told Starr Sports on the sidelines of the sod-cutting ceremony for one of the facilities at Dunkwa-Offin in the Central region Monday.
So far grounds have been broken for construction works to begin in 6 regions, with the remaining regions, Brong Ahafo, Upper East, Upper West and the Northern regions expected to follow suit by the end of next week.
