According to him, Government will partner the management of the school in order to come up with short, medium and long term strategies which will advance the college.
He reiterated that after the renovation and upgrading, the college will serve as camping sites for the various junior national teams in order to keep it running and busy.
The minister made these comments when he and directors of the ministry, paid a working visit to the college at Winneba on Wednesday.
He explained that “government spends so much in camping the junior teams in expensive hotels and if that money is pumped into the development of the college, we will all benefit from it”.
In his response as to whether the Ghana Football Association (GFA) will comply with this directive when it comes into being, Hon. Humado explained that government determines the usage of funds given to the FA therefore the directive could easily be adhered to.
The Director-General of the College, Mr. Joe Kpenge, expressed his appreciation on behalf of the management of the school to the minister and his entourage for the visit.
He, however, expressed his disappointment in the selection of talents to the various national teams, saying “government spends so much on the development of these talents and yet they are not drafted into the national teams to serve their purpose”.
He added that another challenge facing the college was the need for flexibility in the instrument that established it, appealing that the college be granted autonomy to pursue a public-private-partnership strategy to maintain and develop facilities in the school.
The Minister also visited the tennis courts, football pitches, hostel facilities and also called on the former Director of the College, Mr. Dominc Asabea, who is currently indisposed.
