The NDC-UK/Ireland chapter Chairman Alhaji Alhassan Mbalba has highlighted on key points in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) manifesto which will be implemented by His Excellency John Dramani Mahama when elected as President by Ghanaians come December 7.
Alhaji Mbalba in an interview stated that The National Democratic Congress under the leadership of former President Jerry John Rawlings made sure athletes always come back home with laurels anytime they go for tournaments.
“If I could recollect His Excellency John Dramani Mahama as the President built the Bukom Sports Emporium which is dedicated to only boxing. I can assure you that the next NDC government will build FIFA/CAF stadiums in the newly created regions”.
“His Excellency John Dramani Mahama together with Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang will take Ghana to its old sports recognition. Believe me, Ghanaians will witness an aggregate in the sports sector. There will be no player exodos in the domestic league.” Alhaji Mbalba added
