The 800-1000 capacity recreational centre located near the Len Clay Stadium comes with mini-conference rooms, an auditorium, washrooms, a playground and other facilities.

Executed by Jaborah Construction Limited, the GHC 13 million project is being financed by the Ghana Secondary Cities Support Programme (GSCSP).

The Minister expressed satisfaction with the progress of work and charged both the contractors and the Municipal Assembly to speed up work to ensure the project was completed within the six-month period.

He said the government was committed to enhancing infrastructure and improving living conditions in the 35 beneficiary cities under the Ghana Secondary Cities Support Programme across the country.

Before inspecting the project site, the Minister met Municipal Assembly staff, during which he encouraged them to maintain quality service delivery to improve people's lives.

They should work towards the successful completion of projects under the GSCSP, highlighting the significant impact the projects would have on communities.

Mr. Elijah Adansi-Bonah, the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), assured residents that the project would be completed within time, emphasising the difficulties the Assembly faced in relocating the artisans who used to occupy the project site.

“We had a torrid time relocating the artisans from the project site to their new place at Biakoyeden.

This is the reason for the delay of the project, but we are working hard to meet the deadline,” he noted.

He said the recreational centre had been on the books of the Assembly for a long time and was finally seeing the light of day.
