We will ensure proper maintenance of Koforidua Youth Resource Centre – Seth Acheampong
The Eastern Regional Minister, Seth Acheampong, has vowed to make good use of the Koforidua Youth Resource Centre while ensuring the facility is properly maintained.
The construction of the facility began in March 2018 as part of the government’s ten multi-purpose Youth Resource Centres project, aimed at nurturing talents. The facility was expected to be completed within nine months, but the project suffered delays.
However, the Koforidua facility has become the first to be completed with the commissioning done on Wednesday, December 27.
Sporting facilities in Ghana have been left to deteriorate after a few years of construction while others have suffered poor maintenance.
Acheampong is determined to ensure the Koforidua Youth Resource Centre doesn’t suffer the same fate.
“With regard to the Koforidua Youth Resource Centre, we wish to reassure you that we will take appropriate steps to ensure proper maintenance of the facility at all times so as to serve its useful purpose,” he said during the commissioning.
“We will also bring all stakeholders together to brainstorm on developing a local sports policy to leverage the facility and to a large extent create better opportunities for the youth in terms of employment.”
With the completion of the Koforidua Resource Centre, nine others are also expected to be commissioned.
