Bawumia lays foundation for Gambaga sports complex construction


Excitement swept through Gambaga in the North East Region as Vice President and Flagbearer of the NPP, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, broke ground for the construction of a modern sports complex this morning.

The initiative aims to provide modern sports amenities for Gambaga’s youth and its vicinity, while also serving as a communal gathering spot.

During the sod-cutting event, attended by a throng of enthusiastic young people, Dr. Bawumia stressed the importance of the Gambaga Sports Complex in nurturing youth sporting talent and offering quality facilities for teams.

Notably, Dr. Bawumia previously inaugurated the Naa Sheriga Sports Complex in Nelerigu, a project he personally championed for the community.

Key features will include a 1000-seat grandstand, VIP section, team and spectator amenities, changing rooms, and administrative offices.

Under the Akufo-Addo administration, over 150 astro turfs have been erected nationwide, a substantial leap from the two available before their tenure.

The Gambaga Sports Complex marks the government’s second astro turf and sports facility in the North East Region, following the construction of a similar one in Walewale four years ago.
