The Sports Ministry fulfilling the vision of His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo
Undoubtedly, His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo is on the verge of fulfilling his time bound promises to the good people of Ghana. These promises are being achieved through the invaluable services of the various sector Ministers. Ipso facto; the Youth and Sports Ministry is the most critical and sensitive of all the Ministries by virtue of previous personalities that occupied the office. Various Ministers came and their relationship with stakeholders were very hostile and yearly reports of Auditor General indicted them of financial malfeasance and impropriety.
The greatest of all that plundered the state into international ridicule was when USD 3M was airlifted to Brazil without any justification whatsoever. Ghanaians have still not forgotten the GYEEDA Executive Summary Report that indicts the Sector Minister then; how dubios contracts were awarded to Jospong Group of Companies, Asongtaba Cottage and other subsidiaries owned by Raymond Agambire under the pretext of "BETTER GHANA".
Under the watch of the President and the impeccable Sector Minister, Isaac Kwame Asiama, what NDC couldn’t achieve within the span of 8years in office; Mr. Isaac Kwame Asiama has used about 23 Months to achieve these remarkable feat. The rule of the game is labelled "Hard Core Evidence". This government do not and will not thrive on the mercies of propaganda!
The Remarkable Feat Discovered After The Tour of Hon. Isaac Kwame Asiamah!
The sod cutting spree that was embarked in May 2018 for the construction of Youth Resource Centres across the ten regions of the country shall be fully completed in the early part of 2019. The President is committed to the creation of jobs for the youth through the development of skills and talent and these Resource Centres shall be a tool for such realization. The facilities will house a FIFA standard football field, Basket and Handball Courts, Career Counselling, ICT Centre, Restaurant, a multi-purpose sports hall, 8-lane athletics track, and other facilities. The mini stadium can seat up to 5000 people. These jumbo works indicate how the Youth and Sports Minister is committed to translate the vision of the President of the Republic into a reality!
Respective Beneficiaries of these multi-purpose facilities
Yendi in the Northern Region, Navrongo in the Upper East Region, Wa in the Upper West Region, Dormaa in the Brong Ahafo Region, Dunkwa-on-Offin in the Central Region, Ho in the Volta Region, Nyinahini in the Ashanti Region, and Axim in the Western Region. Ghana had a young President whose heart and emotions wasn’t with the youth, as such their plight increased day in- day out.
The likes of Brogya Genfi saw nothing wrong under such incompetent yoke of leadership. And today, they have that tenacity to muddy the reputation, dignity and integrity of the Sector Minister, Hon. Isaac Kwame Asiamah whose achievements have become a nightmare to NDC and its leadership. The youth of Ghana shall continue to trust the President, Nana Akufo-Addo and Hon. Isaac Kwame Asiamah as they roll out policies that will sharpen the skills and talent of the youth in their various field of endeavors.
