President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama, has donated 50,000 Ghana cedis to Premier league side, Bechem United, which will directly be channeled towards the refurbishment of the Nana Badu Stadium.
The donation, which was made on his behalf by Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah, was in partial fulfillment of the promise that President Mahama made, when he toured the region ahead of the 2016 elections.
The Chief Executive Officer of the club, Nana Kwesi Darligton, expressed his joy over the President’s donation towards the construction of the stadium.
At a brief ceremony in Bechem, Mr. Darlington said: “We are very grateful to President Mahama for honouring the promise he made last two weeks. The money will be channeled into the construction of the stadium stands and, we hope that further funds would arrive for the laying down of a new pitch which will be suitable for us, especially ahead of the CAF Confederation Cup next year.”
