The Volta Regional Youth and Sports Resource Center which was expected to be completed 9 months after sod cutting has been left at the mercy of the weather to rot.

The 5,000 sitting edifice which is under the construction of Wilkado Construction Company Limited is expected to have a standard football pitch, tanta tracks, handball, volley ball, Gymnasium, ICT Center etc.

Interestingly, a visit to the site by the Swiss Sports team shows that, no works has been done for over 6 months.

The grasses grown on the pitch has been left to over grow with other unwanted plants creeping in.

The Tennis court has been left unattended with no sign of work while seats at the popular stand fixed and left at the mercy of the weather. 

The resource center as we were told will have a world class tanta tracks has not been fixed with the bushy environment completely abandoned.

At the VIP section, works have come to a halt with some of the metal structures seen rusting

The government, through the Ministry of Youth and Sports led by the former deputy minister Pius Enam Hadzide in the sod cutting ceremony on July 10 2018 promised the Chiefs and people of Volta Region, government's intention to build the Resource Center within 9 months.

Three years on, no works have gone on for more than 6 months. The edifice has become a breeding ground for reptiles and other animals to hide.

Checks conducted by the Swiss Sports team reveals, workers are yet to get back to site with no specific time set.

The Ho Sports Stadium has become the only sporting edifice in the Regional capital, hosting varieties of games and serving as a ground for other non sporting activities.

The resource center would have serve as another alternative to the increasing demands of sporting events in the region.
