Ghana hosted the 13th African Games: The Good, Bad and Ugly

Ghana won the rights to host the 13th edition of the African Games in 2017 (the first time the Games was being held in Ghana since its inception in 1965). Fast forward, Ghana met the requirements to host the tournament after satisfying the requirements of the African Union Sports Council (AUSC), developing and constructing internationally standard facilities to host the event.

What does this tell us? Ghana must maintain these facilities on prompt basis to meet international standards at all times. Maintenance has been one major problem in Ghana but we can do things right.

Ghana through engaging in annual or binary tournaments with sister countries can also help maintain the facilities and also ensure that we unearth talents who can compete and win laurels at the highest level.
