Hey, to all the Kuulpeeps at the University of Ghana, Legon!!!!
Your sports team is about to get a really good boost.
The government has freed up GHS 10m to complete the 30,000 capacity Legon stadium.
Construction of the multi-million dollar stadium started in 2004 by CONSAR Limited under the administration of former President, John Agyekum Kuffuor.
However, in the last four years, work has stalled after, the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund) decided not to finance the project, myjoyonline reports.
“We are committed to continuing work on the University of Ghana stadium and completing it .We have gone on site, inspected the extent of work, and have asked the AESL to access what needs to be done. They have submitted their reports and we have taken the steps to raise an initial GH₵ 10,000,000 so that we can proceed with work on the University stadium,” the Deputy Sports Minister Pius Enam Hadzide is quoted to have said.
The stadium, if completed, will be one of the venues for the 2018 African Women’s Championship to be hosted by Ghana.
