The Minister of Youth and Sports, Honourable Isaac Kwame Asiamah, will cut sod today, for reconstruction work to begin at the Nkawkaw Stadium.

The Minister will be supported at the ceremony by the Director General of the National Sports Council, Professor Peter Twumasi, the Chief Executive Officer of the Middle Belt Development Authority, Hon. Joe Danquah and his Deputy, Madam Joyce Opoku Boateng, Eastern Regional Minister who doubles as the Member of Parliament for Nkawkaw, Hon Eric Kwakye Darfour, Minucipal Chief Executive of Nkawkaw, Hon. Yaw Owusu Addo and traditional rulers.
