Bawumia cuts sod for construction of Gambaga Sports Complex

By Ivan Amponsah

There was an outpour of excitement in Gambaga, in the North East Region as Vice President and Flagbearer of the NPP Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, cut the sod on Monday for the construction of a modern sports complex.

The project is aimed at providing modern sports facilities for the youth of Gambaga and its environs. It will also serve as a social centre for the entire community.

Speaking at the sod cutting ceremony, which, was attended by scores of excited youth, Dr. Bawumia said the Gambaga Sports Complex, when completed, will particularly help the youth to showcase their talents in sports and also offer teams in the area a decent playing ground.

This project is on the back of the commissioning of the Naa Sheriga Sports Complex, personally built in Nelerigu for the community and its environs by the NPP Presidential Candidate Dr. Bawumia.

The project is funded by the Ghana Gas with Wembley Sports as the Contractors.

The project is expected to be completed in five months. The Gambaga Sports Complex will have a 1000-seater stand, a VIP area, washrooms for teams and spectators, changing rooms, offices among others.

The Akufo-Addo government has built over 150 astro turfs across the country, since assuming office in 2017, a clear departure from the situation it inherited, as Ghana had only two public astro turfs in Ghana prior to 2017.

The Gambaga Sports Complex will be the second astro turf and sports complex by government in the North East Region, after a similar one was constructed in Walewale 4 years ago.
