Govt. Explains Stadium Repair Delay
National Sports Authority boss, Robert Sarfo Mensah, has explained why renovation works on the Accra Sports Stadium have delayed.
There are concerns about the safety of the edifice, which has seen no facelift since its refurbishment for the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations.
Although last year, Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah, after touring the facility, promised that massive renovation works would start last June – and despite some sections being closed down – nothing was done.
But Sarfo Mensah tells Joy Sports, the delay was due to government following the necessary procedures to get the stadium back in shape.
‘’….Awarding the contract for the renovation goes through a process, this government campaigned against sole sourcing, so we are more concerned about value for money processes.”
