Minister Launches Sports Festival

The Minister of Youth and Sports, Hon Clement Kofi Humado  has noted that the collapse of the National Sports Festival in the past seven years  is partly to blame for Ghana’s disappointing results in international competitions such as the All African Games ,Commonwealth Games etc.

 

The Minister made this comments when he launched the revived National Sports Festival christened ‘National Unity Games’   under the themed ‘Uniting The People Through Sports ‘at the media centre of the Accra Sports Stadium in Accra.


He described the National Sports Festival as a platform for discovering sportsmen and sportswomen, who in previous years rose to gain prominence at both national and international levels in various disciplines.

 

Commenting on the theme, Mr Humado expressed his satisfaction on the choice of theme as very appropriate  cautioning Ghanaians to appreciate the peace they are enjoying  in the country as compared to neighboring  Cote’ D’Ivoire.


He commended the National Sports Council (NSC)  for factoring in colts soccer as part of the disciplines to be contested during the festival since it discovered talents such as Asamaoh Gyan,Micheal Essien and Abedi Pele.


On his part, the Chief Executive Officer of the National Sports Council, Mr Wolanyo Agra expressed absolute confidence on the ability of the Festival to unearth talents and strengthen the national teams for the all African Games in September and the 2012 London Olympic Games.


He noted that the 10-day sports festival has a unique appeal as it seeks to unify Ghanaians and bring together all stake holders and interested parties of Ghana sports adding that the festival also seeks to keep alive the spirit of rebranding in the NSA .


He called on the media to partner the Ministry of Youth and Sports and the NSA to make the unity Games a success and invited various corporate bodies and private institutions to support the Authority through various sponsorship offers.


The festival scheduled to kick off 0n july 17 is expected to assemble over 5,000 men and women from all regions, tertiary institutions and the security services to vie for honours at the event.


Overall 20 disciplines will be contested which are Colt soccer, Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Chess and disabled sports.


The rest are Handball, Hockey, Judo, Karate-do, Netball, Cycling, Scrabble, Swimming, Table Tennis, Taekwondo, Volleyball and Weightlifting.
