Mr. Ben Nunoo Mensah, President of the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC), has
commended Ghana’s Ministry of Youth and Sports (MOYS) for putting in a good bid
to secure the hosting right for the 2023 All-Africa Games (AAG).

MOYS on Thursday,
announced that, Ghana has secured the right to host the continental sports
festival, amidst applause from the sporting fraternity.

Speaking to the media,
Mr. Nunoo Mensah confirmed the report but cautioned against any wild
celebration until the delegation returns to make the official announcement.

“Technically, Ghana
has won the bid for the 2023 African Games but we should wait for the
delegation to return and do the formal announcement,” Nunoo Mensah stated.

“Egypt were the
biggest threat to Ghana, but the Ministry put up a good bid.”

This would be the
first time Ghana would be hosting the competition and would join the likes of
Congo Brazzaville, Mali, Nigeria, Algeria, Kenya, Egypt, Zimbabwe, South Africa
and Mozambique as the only countries to have hosted the event.

Egypt remains the most
successful country in the All-Africa Games having won 1,362 medals in total.
