Ghana FA President Kurt E.S Okraku commissions 3 boreholes in Kumasi

Kurt E.S. Okraku, the president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), has given the go-ahead for three new borehole projects in the Ashanti Region’s Kumasi Metropolitan area.

The Ghana FA said it would commission more in the region after the commissioning on Monday, April 17.

“The project sites include Ejisu Okese Park, Kumasi Anglican Senior High School Park (KASS) and the Wesley College School Park. The aforementioned venues are used by the Regional Football Association as Game Centres for Third Division, Second Division and Women’s Division One clubs,” a communique on the Ghana FA website announced on Monday.

It added, “A number of boreholes have been allocated to each of the ten football regions across the country. Notable amongst them are Regional Football Associations Game Centres, some Division One League venues, some Premier League venues, and the GFA Technical Centre at Prampram.

“The Ghana Football Association would continue to provide updates regarding the commissioning of the other borehole facilities in the coming days.”

Kurt Okraku, the president of the GFA, came up with the idea for the borehole project, which is being supported by the FIFA Forward 1.0 initiative.

The Premier League, Division One League, Women’s Premier League, and Regional Game Centers are projected to profit from the project’s provision of boreholes, which is intended to enhance the quality of fields and, ultimately, competitions across the nation.
