The facility, which was funded by the GNPC Foundation and constructed by Blag Ghana Limited, comes with a standard FIFA pitch, floodlights and a barbed-wire fence.

Speaking at the event, Hon. Boamah said the facility is open to everyone in his constituency to use.

“Over the years, Apenkwa has produced a lot of sporting talents but that has dried up now. We have put this facility for everyone in Okaikwei South to use. The only thing required of users is that they take very good care of it,” he said.
