“Hosting Africa Games 2023 will accelerate the development of Ghana sport” – Sports Minister
The Minister of Youth and Sports, Mustapha Ussif, says hosting the 2023 Africa Games in Ghana will be of immense benefit to the country’s sports development.
Speaking at the official sod-cutting ceremony at Borteyman, Accra on Tuesday by President Akufo-Addo, to commence construction of facilities for the Games, Mustapha Ussif noted that hosting the Games will not only significantly boost the nation’s sports infrastructure in the country but also accelerate the country’s sports development, which he said, falls in line with government’s vision.
“Hosting the biggest sporting event on the African continent; the African Games 2023, falls in line with the vision of His Excellency President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to promote national development through sports,” Mustapha Ussif said.
“In the wisdom of the President, hosting the African Games will also accelerate the development of sports as well as provide the needed sports infrastructure to quicken such development.”
The Sports Minister said the Akufo-Addo government has already delivered unprecedented sports infrastructure in the country in the past four years, and the African Games will add to that remarkable legacy.
