The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has praised the Director General of the National Sports Authority (NSA), Professor Peter Twumasi, for his exceptional contribution to the growth of sports in Ghana.

His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II who is also the owner and life patron of Kumasi Asante Kotoko extolled the good works of the NSA boss in facilitating the provision of sporting facilities across the country.

He made these commendations when, together with the sector Minister, Mustapha Ussif, they paid a courtesy call on the Asantehene at the Manhyia Palace last Friday.

The Asantehene encouraged the sports minister, his deputy and the Director General of NSA to be committed in the task that has been assigned to them by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as that will lead to the development of sports and unearthing more talents for the country.

Otumfuo Osei Tutu II stressed the need to maintain the standard of work ethics required in achieving the President’s vision about sports, and specifically mentioned Prof. Peter Twumasi for embarking on laudable initiatives.

“So, as the work has been given to you, that’s what Ghana is demanding from you, that’s what the President is requiring from you people.

 “You and  your assistants will do it, Prof. Twumasi has started, I have seen that he is embarking on certain programmes, he is going here and there and speaking, in all if you support the vision with your knowledge, then you will do it right”. Otumfuo stated.

The NSA Boss later inspected the Baba Yara Sports with Hon. Mustapha Ussif where the Sports Minister told the media that the facility was ready to host football games after it was closed down since February 2020 for some important renovation works.
