The Local Organising Committee of the 13th African Games, led by Dr. Kwaku Ofosu-Asare the Executive Chairman, and Mustapha Ussif, the Honorable Minister for Youth and Sports, paid a working visit to the President of Ghana at the Jubilee House to update him on the progress of work after the inauguration of the Local Organising Committee five months ago.
Among the topics discussed was how the LOC had facilitated the construction of the multi-purpose stadium for the Games at Borteyman.
Also reviewed was the protocol agreement with the African Union (AU) which needs to be signed between Ghana and the African Union Sports Council.
Efforts to improve Ghana’s position in the Games medal table and recent stakeholders’ meetings with the media to promote the African Games were also on the agenda.
The President commended the Local Organising Committee (LOC) for their achievements thus far. He assured them that the hosting of the event is considered a national project.
He guaranteed the members of the LOC that his door would always be open to them and asked them to keep him regularly updated on the progress of the project, including the construction of the planned new stadium.
The President assured them that he would ensure that work on the stadium would start soon.
