The management of the Youth Resource Centers around the nation has been instructed by Vice President Bawumia to instill a culture of proper use and care for the facilities.
Dr. Bawumia pushed the contractor to reach the estimated completion date while speaking during a Wednesday inspection of ongoing construction at the Wa Youth Resource Center. He expressed pleasure with the progress of the work thus far.
According to the contractor, Phase One of the project is finished, while Phase Two is 98% finished.
One of ten such resource centers, for which construction started in the ten areas that existed at the time before the introduction of six new regions, is the Wa Youth Resource Center.
The multipurpose Centers will contain, among other things, football fields, stands, and other facilities for youth development and training to aid them in developing the necessary abilities in a variety of sporting disciplines for the benefit of society as a whole.
Vice President Bawumia noted that the Resource Centre in Adaklu in the Volta Region hosted this year’s Independence Day celebration and stressed that the government was committed to seeing that the other centers were also finished.
“I am very impressed so far by what I have seen. I have been told by the contractor that in a couple of months works will be completed.
“This facility is very important for Ghana, especially the people of the Upper West Region and Wa. It is a multi-purpose facility, so hopefully it will help unearth talents in the many sporting disciplines and provide opportunities for their development. It will also help channel youthful energies to good use.
“This is a promise we have delivered, and we will continue to deliver on our promises,” he emphasized.
The Vice President, who was on a day’s visit to the region, was accompanied by the Regional Minister, Hafiz Bin Salih, and other government officials.
