The Youth and Sports Minister, lsaac Asiamah, left the multipurpose sports complex at Nyinahin in the Ashanti Region highly impressed with the quality of work.

He disclosed that many of the sports centres under construction would be inaugurated in the coming months by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

The minister, together with Mr Emmanuel Asigri, CEO of the National Youth Authority, yesterday inspected the facility, which is progressing steadily and is expected to be completed in June this year.

The NPP MP for Atwima Mponua said after the inspection that he was highly impressed with the progress of work at the facility.

“The quality of work is great; I didn't know a lot goes into the pitch construction — the irrigation system and all that.

"Certainly, this will create jobs for the youth in the community and its surrounding areas, as well as unearth talents," Mr Asiamah said.

"Few months from now, we are expecting President Akufo-Addo to commission the 10 facilities aimed at providing platforms for the youth in the country.
