Asafa Powell said such a project for kids especially is very laudable and thanked Mr Clement Nii Lamptey Wilkinson, the Municipal Chief Executive of Ga West (Amasaman) as well as everyone who has supported in protecting the land which was secured during the era of Hon. B.T Baba, a former GOC Boss.

According to Asafa Powell planning for the kids and youth is very ideal and important because they are the future leaders of the nation, and some of them will become the stars of Ghana in sports.

He presented some kids who accompanied the MCE and the officials with products from Twelluim Industrial and Indomie who are supporting the historical trip to Ghana.

Some GOC officials who were part of the visit to Amasaman were Mr Abe Duah, Deputy Treasurer / President of the Ghana Tennis Association, Mr Emmanuel Asare President of Ghana Cricket and Edem Accountant.
