He also congratulated the 4 x100 metres squad who pipped Nigeria and South Africa in one of the most important events at the Games.

According to Ben Nunoo Mensah, Ghana must work hard to host the 2023 African Games because the nation is going to manage about 25 disciplines, and the very sports federations must prove that they are capable of doing the work.
