An NPP stalwart and Member of Parliament (MP) for Essikado-Ketan Constituency in the Western Region, Joe Ghartey in a letter to the Ministry of Youth and Sports seem to suggest that the update given by Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta in the 2022 Budget is untrue.

Essipong Stadium

Mr. Ofori-Atta during his budget presentation to Parliament on Wednesday, November 17, noted the rehabilitation works on the Essipon Stadium is 90% completed.

But the MP of the area where the said stadium is located said his checks reveal contrary to the Finance Minister’s claim.

Mr. Ghartey, who himself is a senior member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in a letter addressed to the Ministry of Youth and Sport is demanding an update on the state of work so far on the Essipon Stadium in his constituency.

My checks reveal otherwise. As Member of Parliament for the area, I would be grateful if you could furnish me with the update of the said project which is located in my constituency,” portion of the MP's letter read.
