All African Games: Naysayers have been shamed – Akufo-Addo

The President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has thanked the people of Ghana for not listening to naysayers who doubted the country’s resolve to host the African Games in Accra.

He says these naysayers called for the cancellation of the games but the support of the games has proven that the country can do anything if she puts her mind to it.

The President in a statement, indicated that the success of the games is a testament to the fact that Ghana needs to invest and empower the youth to reach higher heights with their talents in sports.

Adding that together, the country can harness the potential of sports to build a stronger, healthier, and more prosperous country.

Ghana hosted the 13th African Games in its capital,Accra.

Prior to the event, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer called for the cancellation of the games because, to him, it would stretch the country’s finances which were suffering.

“If it’s not too late, we can pull out of hosting the Africa Ganes, as it will severely stretch our precarious finances by hundreds of millions of cedis,” he said in a speech.

While the event was ongoing, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), through its Communications Director, Sammy Gyamfi issued a statement calling for an investigation into the organization of the sports event.
