Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has called on the management of the Youth Resource Centre to adopt the culture of proper usage and maintenance of the facilities.
According to the Vice President, the Wa Youth Resource Centre is one of the 10 multi-purpose youth resource centres being constructed by the government in 10 regions.
The Wa facility falls under one of the six centres, which are in Phase 2 of construction and which are nearing completion.
Other centres in Phase 2, according to the Vice President, are Axim, Dormaa Ahenkro, Koforidua, Dunkwa-on-Offin and Ho.
During an inspection of ongoing works at the Wa Youth Resource Centre, Dr Bawumia expressed satisfaction and challenged the contractor to meet the proposed completion date.
According to the contractor, phase one of the project is complete, while phase two is 98% complete.
Among others, the multi-purpose centres will have football pitches, stands, and other facilities for youth development and training to help them acquire the requisite skills in diverse sporting disciplines for the overall benefit of society.
Vice President Bawumia recalled that this year’s independence day celebration was held at the resource centre at Adaklu in the Volta Region and emphasized the government’s commitment to ensuring that the other centres are also completed.
Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia also noted that the project will greatly benefit the people of the Upper West Region and Wa as it will help unleash talents in various sporting disciplines and provide opportunities for development.
