A certain private company that had realized the splendid works of the Manhyia South lawmaker, decided to support him with the big project.
Works on the AstroTurf project officially kick-started some few weeks ago but the contractor seemed to have done a lot of work already.
During the paper’s visit to Abbey’s Park during the week, huge machines were seen digging ground in preparation for the AstroTurf project to take place.
Dr. Prempeh, affectionately called ‘Napo’, prior to the start of the project, stated that sports development in his constituency is one of his core objectives.
He indicated that the AstroTurf project would definitely offer appropriate training ground where future Blacks Stars players would be unearthed at Ash Town.
According to him, aside the AstroTurf, a building at Abbey’s Park which contains a library and other offices, would also be refurbished for the youth to use.
