5 of 10 Youth Resource Centres to be completed by end of March 2023 – Pius Enam Hadzide

Five of the ten Youth Resource Centres being constructed across the country are set to be completed and handed over by the end of March 2023, that is according to the Chief Executive Officer of the National Youth Authority, Pius Enam Hadzide.

The construction of the facilities started in 2018 and was supposed to take nine months to complete but five years down the line not a single has been completed.

A Joy Sports campaign tagged Bush Resource Centres has been highlighting the neglect and abandoning of the facilities which have already seen about $20 million invested in the projects.

Reacting to the reports by Joy Sports’ Fentuo Tahiru Fentuo on PM Express Wednesday, March 15, Hadzide said the authority has strategically decided to concentrate resources on completing five of the projects. He has now claimed those five will be completed and handed over by the end of the month.

“The instructions to the contractors which we are still following is the end of this quarter so I expected that by the end of March [five of the projects should be completed],” he said on Joy News.

“Tartan track is being laid as we speak in Axim because we are almost complete. I can assure you that we are committed to completing the projects.

“We have almost complete five. We will complete the other five in due time.”

The five projects that are expected to be completed by the end of the month include; Ho, Axim, Koforidua, Wa and Dormaa.
