The Mfantsipim Old Boys Association (MOBA) has cut the sod for the construction of a GH¢1 million ultra-modern basketball court complex for the school.

The 400-seater court complex would be sponsored by the 1970, 80, 90 and 2000 year groups as the project for this year's speech and prize-giving day.

The court has its own seating area, two changing rooms and washrooms.

Completion

The Chairman of the 2020 Sponsoring Year Groups Steering Committee, Brigadier General Joe D Prah, noted that despite the challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the year groups were determined to complete the project and hand it over by November.

He said the project was expected to enhance the school's participation in competitions and help produce more excellent sportsmen for the nation.

The Project Manager, Mr Kofi Easel Appiah, said the company intended to deliver the project by mid November barring any contingencies.

Regional Minister

The Central Regional Minister, Mr Kwamena Duncan, commended the old boys for the support towards the school and particularly, the Ebusuapanyin for his direction for the school.

The president of the 1990 year group, the lead sponsoring group, Mr David Abbey, pledged the commitment of the groups to the prompt completion of the project and urged all to cooperate for the project's successful completion.
