GNPC starts construction works on Astroturf facility for Awutu Senya West

Construction works have started on an Astroturf facility at the Senya District Assembly Basic School Park in the Awutu Senya West District of the Central Region.


It is to serve as a football facility for the area as part of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation's (GNPC) commitment to youth development in Ghana.

The Chief Executive Officer of the GNPC, Opoku-Ahweneeh Danquah, together with Eugene Kofi Bentum Arhin, the 2024 parliamentary candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Awutu Senya West constituency, joined forces to break the gound for construction works to start and emphasised the transformative power of sports.

In an effort that goes beyond mere philanthropy, the GNPC boss, Opoku-Ahweneeh Danquah highlighted GNPC's commitment to creating an environment conducive to youth development, by transforming bare spaces into standardised, contemporary pitches.

He said it was GNPC's aim to provide the youth with enhanced opportunities to refine their skills and compete on a global scale. This initiative seeks to elevate the prospects of individuals, families, and the nation as a whole.

The project, which includes an inner perimeter fence and floodlights, was initiated following a collaborative plea from Nenyi Kwaku Komitey III, the President of the Awutu Senya Traditional Council, and Eugene Kofi Bentum Arhin, acting on behalf of the community.

This partnership showcases GNPC's comprehensive support to all 16 regions of Ghana, exemplifying the corporation's dedication to fostering positive change through sports development.

At the ceremony to hand over the site plan to the contractor, Dr. Dominic Eduah, the Executive Director of the GNPC Foundation, reaffirmed the corporation's commitment to the Central Region.

He highlighted the significant impact demonstrated by the allocation of over 2000 scholarships to students from the region and the recent renovation of the Central Regional House of Chiefs.

Expressing their gratitude, Nenyi Komitey III thanked GNPC for heeding their call for assistance and assured the corporation of the community's support in ensuring the successful completion and management of the project.

With an estimated completion time of four months, the project stands as a testament to GNPC's dedication to fostering youth development and driving positive change through sports.
