Minister for Youth and Sports, Mustapha Ussif on Friday toured the Baba Yara Sports Stadium to inspect the progress of renovation works done.
The Sports Minister after the ceremony said he was impressed by the extent of work and indicated the facility will soon be commissioned for use.
“We must laud His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for his immense contribution to the growth of Sports across the country. It is a remarkable feat under his administration where there are over 70 astroturfs and 10 Youth resource centres nationwide,” Mustapha Ussif told reporters at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
“We are satisfied with the work the contractors has done. The facility will be commissioned in few weeks for the various clubs in the Ashanti Region to use it as their home venue in the upcoming season.
“The Stadium is now in a good shape with ultra-modern floodlights and other facilities which gives clubs like Asante Kotoko, King Faisal and other Division One League teams the green light to play their home matches.
He also appealed to spectators to be watchdogs of the facility in any game and also assured of a maintenance manual to avoid its deterioration.
The Baba Yara Sports Stadium was shut down in February 2019 for renovation.
