The Member of Parliament congratulated the media on their regular follow ups on the proposed site and the GOC President, Ben Nunoo Mensah for his courage, intention and vision to ensure that the abandoned 17 acres site, was used for a good purpose for Ghana and the community.
Mr. Anim noted that the purpose for the site must be fulfilled to get the projects completed and maintained to last for years, as the media provide constructive criticism.
According the Architect, the OlympAfrica Ghana would be fitted with three football fields, comprising two astro turfs and an athletic oval, as well as a hostel, kitchen, multi-purpose sports hall or pavilion, swimming pool and the main center with offices, conference hall, and clinic.
He hinted that there would be a spacious car park and site for commercial activities for the community.
Mr. Nunoo Mensah also noted that “work would start as soon as other stakeholders have contributed like the media did, when literature and history of the site is ready.
“The facility would be a tourist attraction when completed as there would be the OlympAfrica Village and Ghanaian sports heroes would be remembered with their names on the gates to the site and buildings.
The GOC President said, the site, which was hitherto a forest was cleared free of charge by Decker Engineering and Construction and the community sports facility, where young sports people between the ages of 6-16 years could train and host competitions, would be open for corporate Ghana to fund and brand.
Among the personalities who joined the media to the site were Paul Atchoe, vice president of the GOC and president of Ghana Volleyball Association (GVA), Albert Frimpong of the Ghana Baseball Association, George Lamptey of Ghana Amateur Boxing Federation, Theo Edzie of the Ghana Swimming Federation, Nana Mankattah of Sports For All, Abraham Boakye of GHANSU, Emmanuel Olla Williams, GOC Youth Projects Coordinator, Eric J. Donkor, Municipal Engineer of Ga West and Elias Mensah, Municipal Coordinating Director.
