Govt to support the hosting of 2023 All Africa Games


President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has promised that his government will support the hosting and organization of the 2023 African Games.

A land has been secured by government at Borteyman for the construction of a multi-purpose stadium to aid in the organization of the tournament.

Speaking at his first State of the Nation Address since his re-election as President, Nana Addo emphasized that his government will work with the Local Organizing Committee [LOC] to ensure the Games are held successfully.

“Mr Speaker in 2018, Ghana won the bid to host and organize the 2023 African Games for the first time since the tournament started in 1965,” President Akufo-Addo said

"A nine local member committee has been constituted for the inaugural and events aspects of the 2023 African Games.

“Government intends to provide maximum support for the LOC to help ensure that we organize and host the successful games.”

Last week Thursday, the President met members of the LOC led by Dr Kwaku Ofosu-Asare, the Executive Chairman, and Mustapha Ussif, the new Minister of Youth and Sports at the Jubilee House to update him on the progress of work.
