YEA has enrolled close to 1000 athletes and footballers on the program with beneficiaries pocketing GHC500 monthly for the next six months.
“Next year, we will take it to 5000 athletes. Every month people will get something small to take care of themselves. It has never happened before. Nana Addo cares about sports and God bless him. Not only has he done Free SHS but has also extended it to the sports industry”.
Prior to Asiamah’s arrival, there attrition rate at the Ministry of Youth and Sports was at an all-time high.
In the eight years of the NDC government, eight persons served as minister.
However, in the last three years, Asiamah has been the only occupant of that seat and he has attributed it to the support and inspiration from President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
According to him, the president’s commitment to the development of Ghana sports has made his work slightly easier and better.
“He has made my work easier and more convenient as a Sports Minister. He has given me the support and motivation to be a successful minister “.
