In a show of admiration and commendation, Nigeria’s former Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Chief Sunday Dare has expressed his heartfelt appreciation to Ghana for its remarkable hosting of the African Games 2023.

He commended the meticulous planning and execution by the Ghanaian government and its sports authorities, acknowledging their efforts in creating a conducive environment for athletes and participants from across the continent.

“I salute the efforts of the Minister and his team. I have been to the venues and I think this is commendable. I was the chairman of the African Region 2 last year when we took the decision to ensure Ghana was given the 8 months it required to prepare,” Chief Dare remarked.

He further expressed his satisfaction with Ghana’s ability to pull together such a grand event within the stipulated time frame it requested. “I am happy that in eight months, Ghana has been able to pull this together.

Chief Dare emphasized that hosting an event of the magnitude of the African Games necessitates the undivided support of the government, political will, a well-functioning ministry of youth and sports, and the collaborative efforts of various sports stakeholders.

He lauded Ghana’s exemplary demonstration of these essential elements, which contributed to the success of the event and showcased the unity and strength of Africa’s sporting community.

As the African Games 2023 continue to unfold, Chief Sunday Dare expressed optimism for the future of sports development in the region and reiterated his commitment to advancing the cause of youth and sports on the continent.
