He said government would undertake feasibility studies to provide the needed information in relation to the expansion of these infrastructure projects.
The manifesto cited the Brong Ahafo, Eastern,Upper East, Upper West and Volta regions.
He also stated that there would work directed at the enhancement of the National Sports College in Winneba.
The College is currently in a poor state in terms of facilities and it is severely under-used in the area of developing sporting talents and coaching.
“In the area of sports development, feasibility studies will be completed to facilitate the expansion of the infrastructure stock and transform the National Sports College into a center of excellence through public private partnership,” he said.
He went on say that government would focus on the development of other sporting disciplines through the use of school sports.
“Additional efforts will be made to support other sporting disciplines starting from our schools,” he added.
This falls in line with the statement made by the President, Nana Akufo-Addo, in his State of the Nation Address read to Parliament in February.
Former NPP leader John Agyekum Kufour in 2008 built the Essipong and Tamale stadiums and renovated the Accra and Kumasi Sports Stadia into first class facilities, bur after eight years, these facilities are deteriorating. The tracks at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi is an eye sour, while Accra is at the mercy of the sea breeze.
