Vice President of the republic, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, on Friday, officially commissioned the University of Ghana stadium (Legon Stadium) ahead of the 13th edition of the African Games in Accra.

President Akufo-Addo, about two weeks ago, commissioned the Borteyman Sports Complex ahead of the African games.

The UG stadium which has a capacity of 11,000 will serve as one of the centers for the competition and has been completed, as Ghana prepares adequately towards the opening of the Games on March 3.

During the colorful event, the Vice President said “Construction of these facilities has not been easy, but we know that the returns would be immediate and substantial.”

“It is in recognition of the many social and cultural benefits inherent in sports that the Government of His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, President of the Republic, took the bold decision to bid for and win the rights for Ghana to host this edition of the African Games. This visionary step has resulted in the construction of international standard sporting facilities such as the University of Ghana Sports Stadium and Rugby Field and the Borteyman Sports Complex.

“Our theme for this edition of the Games, ‘Experience the African Dream’, is thus steeped in the core values of unity, independence, political and economic cooperation, as well as historical and cultural awareness.”

He added that “this is the age of the African Renaissance. The continent is tagged by Trade Finance Global with the potential to shape geopolitics and world economics for decades to come.

“This potential would not marginally materialize to propel our people into prosperity without conscious and intentional action on the part of everyone, especially leadership across all social divides and facets of society.”

Over 13,000 elite athletes, sports technocrats, technicians, and officials, including volunteers are expected to take part in the African Games that will conclude on Saturday, March 23.
