High-class sporting facilities built for African Games will serve Ghana well after the Games – Akufo-Addo

President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has indicated that he is elated with the facilities the country will be using to host the upcoming African Games.

Ghana will host the rest of the continent in March for the 13th African Games.

Delivering a State of the Nation Address on Tuesday, February 27, President Akufo-Addo said “it gives me great pleasure to report that all the preparations are ready for Ghana to welcome sportsmen and women from around the continent to participate in the 13th edition of the African Games. It seems incredible, but this is the first time that Ghana will be hosting these games.”

The President said he is also happy that the sporting facilities will serve Ghana very well even after the African Games are done.

“It has taken a lot of courage to have persisted with the decision to host the games, especially when our financial problems came in the midst of the preparations. But I am glad we went ahead.

“The preparations are all complete, and I was excited and very pleased with what I saw at Borteyman when I went to commission the Games village some two (2) weeks ago. We have high-class sporting facilities which should serve us well long after the games are over,” President Akufo-Addo said.

The 13th African Games will start in Accra on March 8.
