Ghana’s Vice President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia has constructed a modern sports complex in Nalerigu in the Northern region of Ghana.

Constructed by Wembley Sports Construction, the facility, is made up of a Standard AstroTurf, a VIP Stand, Changing Rooms as well as stands with a 1,000-seating capacity.

In attendance was Ghana’s Minister for Youth and Sports, Hon. Mustapha Ussif, whose era as sector minister has seen tremendous rise in the number of sporting facilities in the country, as well as the Board Chairman of the National Spriost Authority Seth Panwum.

The commissioning was heavily attended by former Black Stars skippers Stephen Appiah and Asamoah Gyan.

Other former stars who attended the event include Emmanuel Armah ‘Senegal’ and Laryea Kingston.

These stars, together with the youth of Nalerigu, were engaged in a friendly football game on the newly built AstroTurf.

Following the commissioning, the Vice President Dr. Bawumia expressed excitement, hoping it will facilitate the development of sports among the youth in the area.

“This morning, I commissioned an ultra-modern sports complex I personally built for the youth of Nalerigu and its environs,” the Vice President said.

“The Sports Complex, which is named after the late Overlord of Mamprugu, Naa Sheriga, has auxiliary facilities such as, a standard astro turf, a VIP stand, changing rooms, stands with a seating capacity of 1000 people, offices, as well as expanded standing areas for future expansion,” he added.

“The Naa Sheriga Sports Complex will not only enhance sports development in the community, it will also be used as a recreational centre, as it can host many social events,” he noted.

The Vice President then expressed gratitude to the former Black Stars players for their support during the commissioning of the facility.

“My gratitude to all the dignitaries who joined me today for the commissioning, including our football legends, Stephen Appiah, Asamoah Gyan, Emmanuel Armah ‘Senegal’ and Laryea Kingston,” he concluded.
