…As He Constructs 3 Astroturf Parks In the Constituency
Youth and people of Nsawam-Adoagyiri have expressed their readiness to vote massively for their Member of Parliament (MP), Frank Annoh-Dompreh.
Their support stems from the decision taken by the MP to provide three different State of the Art Astroturf football pitch for the Constituency.
At a grand groundbreaking ceremony held for the construction of the three football astroturf parks in Adoagyiri at Nsawam, the youth could not hide their joy at the development.
The construction of the State of the Art facility was facilitated by the MP, Frank Annoh-Dompreh who has also bought into the One Constituency One AstroTurf idea.
The construction of the facility which will be handled by Wembley Sports Construction Limited will house a pitch, a conference room, wash/changing rooms, spectator stands, panel mesh fencing and a floodlight.
The MP has tasked the contractors (Wembley Sports Construction) to complete the project on time.
He also instructed that they hire the youth in the area for its labour force to serve as employment for them.
“I have told the contractors not to import any labour force but rely on the youth in the area; so in effect, this falls in line with President Akufo-Addo’s Development policy and job creation vision.
Work starts immediately after breaking the ground this morning.”
The MP also described the facility as a world class facility not only for soccer but other recreational and religious activities.
“To those who benefit for the use of the park, nothing has changed, there is nothing to worry about. I must commend the owners of this land highly for allowing us to use it for a national and a worthy cause,” he said.
Frank Annoh-Dompreh mentioned that the facility when completed will provide a big platform for the youth in the area to showcase their talents as well as equip them with the needed skills to compete with the rest of the world
He said “We want you to lend us your hand by supporting this project, and we promise, we won’t disappoint you.”
General Manager, Wembley Sports Construction Limited, Nana Antwi stated in his address that “We are a solely-owned Ghanaian company and we believe that every community in the country deserves a facility of this nature. We have a policy of one constituency, one artificial pitch, and we intend to achieve this by 2020.”
Also addressing the gathering, Chief Executive officer of Wembley Sports Construction Company Limited, Robert Tetteh Coleman, said his company is set to roll out over one hundred (100) artificial football parks across the country.
According to him, Wembley is facing some challenges such as blocking of roads when people are having funerals and non-availability of playgrounds but indicated that the problems would be over as he was in talks with chiefs, landowners and traditional leaders to help make land available for the project.
He also appealed to corporate organizations and individuals, members of Parliament, Municipal and District Assemblies to come on board for the execution of the project “One Constituency, One artificial Football park” as the realization of such a project would help unearth football talents, protect players from career-threatening injuries, curtail juvenal delinquency since the youth would find a common and accessible playground.
Speaking to some youth after the ground breaking event, they indicated that the MP is sure to have their votes in the coming election so as to be able to continue the good works he has started for the Constituency.
