GNA – Mr Osei Bediako, the Structural Inspector Engineer, at the Accra 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.
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.
