According to the Minister who doubles as the MP for Yagaba-Kubori, renovations started across Ghana with Accra and Kumasi getting some facelifts.

“We started with the Accra Sports Stadium, where the 1st, 2nd and 3rd phases are done and completed. We moved to the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi, 1st phase is done, the contractor is about to move to site for the 2nd phase, Essipong is currently being worked on,” he added.

“There is the need for us to do a major renovation here (Aliu Mahama Stadium) too,” he added, explaining why the Aliu Mahama Stadium deserves the facelift.

The Aliu Mahama Stadium was constructed in 2008 as one of the host facilities for the 2008 AFCON hosted by Ghana.
