The President, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama, yesterday inaugurated an ultra-modern sports complex in Bukom.
The newly-constructed boxing gymnasium (Trust Sports Emporium) includes a 4000-seater boxing arena, Olympic size swimming pool, a restaurant, a nine unit three storey JHS and SHS school and a 20-seater sanitary facility.
According to President Mahama, the absence of quality sports infrastructure, had over the years, taken a toll on the performance of Ghanaian sportsmen and sportswomen.
He said the construction of the Trust Sports Emporium is in fulfillment of his pledge to provide adequate and quality sports infrastructure across every region in the country.
President Mahama promised to fulfill his vision to build first class stadia in five regions if his mandate is renewed at the December 7 polls.
He added that the Trust Sports Emporium will be run commercially to offset the construction cost.
President Mahama also honoured some boxing heroes in the country, in recognition of their contribution to the development of boxing, they include;
David Kotei Poison, Azumah Nelson, Ike Bazooka Quartey, Alfred Quartey, Joseph Agbeko and Joshua Clottey.
