The New Edubiase Sports Stadium which was abandoned for several years, has become a grazing field for cattle and other animals.
In 2015, then-President John Dramani Mahama broke ground on the state-of-the-art New Edubiase Sports Stadium.
However, the stadium, which is believed to be 40% complete, has been abandoned and has turned into a sanctuary for criminals in the neighborhood.
According to Osei Kwadwo, a journalist who visited the stadium, “SHAKDEEN Limited built a wall and a dressing room on the site but had to abandon the project due to budgetary restrictions.”
Former Sports Minister under the John Dramani Mahama administration, Joseph Yammin, raised concern about the state of the stadium in an interview with Osei Kwadwo on Ambassador TV on YouTube on the state of the stadium.
He said that the John Dramani Mahama-led administration got funds for the stadium before leaving office because it was one of the side advantages of the cocoa road building.
He said that work on the stadium would have been completed if the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo government had not terminated the cocoa roads deal.
“The Cocoa Board funded the New Edubiase Sports Stadium project, which was part of the Cocoa Roads deal. The NDC administration, led by John Dramani Mahama, acquired funding for the project before breaking ground, but the sad element is that the project has been abandoned for so long,” Yammin added.
