Mr. McKorley was speaking at the launch of the University of Ghana’s Sports Fund. It is to develop facilities at the school and assist students interested in sports to develop their potential.
The McDan CEO said being very good at sports in his youth, he wished such an initiate was available in 1991 when he enrolled in the premiere university, so his education would be supported.
He called on the private sector to come on board, “the best way to help is through sports and the University would need the private sector for the fund to grow and achieve its purpose”
Mr. McKorley who was made a patron of the fund, donated GHS100, 000 and pledged continuous support.
