Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has announced the establishment of the Ghana School Sports Secretariat. Delivering an address at the UPSA auditorium in Accra, today February 7, the New Patriotic Party ( NPP) flagbearer, the school forms part of his broad vision for Ghana’s sports development. “My government, as part of a broad sports development vision, will establish the Ghana School Sports Secretariat, which will be an agency under the ministry responsible for sports, in collaboration with other stakeholders such as the GES and sports federations.” He added that the Bawumia led government will seek school-level collaboration with international sports bodies like the NBA and NFL to make Ghana a hub for these emerging sports in Africa, to create more opportunities for young people. “We have already tried this with the NFL, the governing body for American football, which agreed to host in Ghana, in 2022, the first ever NFL Flag Football in Africa after my engagement with them. This paved the way for 10 young Ghanaians to be selected to the United States to represent Africa in a global NFL tournament last year. “Another set of young Ghanaians, who were picked after the 2nd NFL Africa Football was also held in Ghana last year, are currently in the United States to represent Africa.”
