Cape Coast, March 1, GNA – Mr Aquinas Tawiah Quansah, the Central Regional Minister, has advised young athletes to exhibit high sense of discipline and desist from negative tendencies that could ruin their future.
Opening the 25th Annual Inter school Regional Athletics Competition (Super Zonal) at the Schools and Colleges Park in Cape Coast, he said good performance and good character were bed fellows and that ‘they should not lose sight of that fact’
In a speech read on his behalf by Mrs. Pricilla Arhin-Korankye, the Metropolitan Chief Executive, he noted that sports, in recent times had become a huge source of employment for several people and many countries were reaping huge sums of foreign exchanges from it to support their economies.
Mr Quansah said the aim of sports was to create an atmosphere of friendship and advised the athletes to see the two-day competition as an opportunity to promote unity even as they competed to make their various schools proud.
He praised the Regional Sports Association and various school authorities for their commitment to the completion since its inception in 1999, and urged them to prepare the athletes well ahead of the National Festival for second Cycle School in Kumasi this year.
‘We have over the years proven to be an unbeatable region when it comes to sports competitions …I have confidence in you that with adequate preparation you can win more laurels to make the central Region proud’ he said.
