President Nana Akufo-Addo at the reading of the State of the Nations Address (SONA) on Thursday indicated that funds had already been released for the completion of the abandoned University of Ghana Sports Stadium.

The Construction of the multi-million dollar stadium was started in 2004 by CONSAR Limited under the administration of former President John Agyekum Kuffuor but work on the facility has stalled after the Ghana Education Trust Fund GETFund decided not to finance the project for over 14 years now.

"Funds have also been released for the completion of the University of Ghana Sports Stadium, started by the Kufuor-led NPP government but abandoned soon after 2009", President Akufo-Addo stated in the SONA.

With Ghana securing the rights to host the 2023 All African Games, measures are been put in place to get the stadium completed so as to serve as a venue for the games.
