“Sports is a full time business, with an opportunity of uniting nations…it brings people together and helps create jobs,” he stated.
“We should use the game to help the youth and also bring peace and unity at every level and discipline of sports, and leave a good legacy for the future”.
Mr. Asiamah welcomed Mr Preca’s suggestion, saying it was the priority of the Ministry to use sports as a tool for job creation and national development.
