Some residents of Navrongo have launched a Facebook campaign to demand the completion of the Navrongo sports stadium/ Youth Resource Centre.

The facility was among 10 stadia being constructed across the country by the Ministry of Youth and Sports.

The residents say the project, which began in late 2018, is long overdue, stating that similar projects which took off at the same time in the other parts of the country have been completed and are being put to use.

The Navrongo sports stadium/Youth Resource Centre is the first of its kind in the Upper East Region.

It comes with facilities such as a green pitch, VIP stands, offices, washrooms and other auxiliary facilities.
On completion, it is expected to serve as a hub for sports activities and sports development in the region.

Although some appreciable work has taken place, the project is yet to be completed and handed over for use nearly five years after the sod was cut for commencement of work.

Social media campaign

Since the beginning of the week, a Facebook campaign #CompleteNavrongoStadiumNow, has gained traction with several calls to residents to join forces to push authorities to act swiftly.

The campaign has also gone viral on WhatsApp where posters are being circulated.

The social media campaign has also targeted opinion leaders in the area, urging them to speak on the delay of the project which is needed at a time the Navrongo football community has made a major breakthrough qualifying for the Division One league.
