Mahama admits new stadium promise unfeasible

    Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has conceded that promising a new stadium if he wins power is not feasible given the current economic crisis.

    Ghana has recently struggled to maintain a modern stadium that meets international football standards, causing issues in getting such facilities approved for Ghana’s matches.

    In an interaction with journalists on Sunday night, Mahama was asked how he intended to address this problem if voted into power in December’s General Elections.

    “In the current crisis in which we are, I would not stand here and promise that we will build a new stadium,” he said. “But I’ve said that under the big push, we intend to spend a certain amount of money over five years on providing good infrastructure to include roads, bridges, agro-industrial parks, and so on and so forth. That could include sports facilities. And if we make allocation, then we probably would look at providing such a stadium,” he concluded.

    The Borteyman Sports Complex and the University of Ghana Stadium, both built for the 2023 African Games, are in good shape to host the competition with hopes of being maintained properly for further competitions.

    Mahama, the ex-president, will face competition from Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the upcoming elections slated for December 2024.
