    Accra, August 29,
    GNA – Mr Osei Bediako, the Structural Inspector Engineer, at the Accra Sports
    Stadium, has said, they would hand over the facility to the National Sports
    Authority (NSA) and the Ministry of Youth and Sports (MOYS), by the end of

    Mr. Bediako, in an
    interview with GNA Sports, said work was almost done at the stadium and the
    facility would be ready by before the commencement of the Africa Women’s Cup of
    Nations (AFCON), in November.

    Asked if he was
    ready for the Confederation of African Football (CAF) inspection team on their
    next visit to Ghana, Mr Bediako said they were ever ready to meet the team,
    since much work has been done.

    “We are handing over
    in October because we know the game is in November and we are would finish
    September. What would be left would be some minor repairs to be done in

    “Unless the CAF is
    expecting other things, which we are not aware of, but aside that, the stadium
    would be ready in no time and I am rest assured,” he said.

    The renovation,
    which began some months ago has seen some improvements, with the score board
    almost ready for fixing, whilst the VIP section, is also near completion.

    “I don’t see why
    Ghana cannot host the competition.

    “Ghana is 100% ready
    and if we are talking about hosting, I don’t think we have a problem concerning
    the stadium, because the VIP session, which is the most important area is
    almost ready and by the end of September, it would be over so I don’t see why
    the hosting can’t be done here.

    “What is left is
    cleaning and painting for now so we don’t have much to do,” he said.

    The 2018 African
    Women’s Cup of Nations would be held in Ghana and is expected to start from
    November 17 to 1 December.
