The abandoned New Edubiase Sports Stadium has been turned into a grazing field for cattle and other animals.
President John Dramani Mahama, at the time, broke ground on the state-of-the-art New Edubiase Sports Stadium in 2015.
However, the stadium, which is thought to be 40% complete, has been abandoned and has become a haven for local criminals.
According to Osei Kwadwo, a journalist who visited the stadium, “SHAKDEEN Limited built a wall and a dressing room on the site but had to abandon the project due to budgetary restrictions.”
In an interview with Osei Kwadwo on Ambassador TV on YouTube, former Sports Minister Joseph Yammin expressed concern about the state of the stadium during the John Dramani Mahama administration.
He said that the John Dramani Mahama-led administration received cash for the stadium before leaving office since it was a benefit of the cocoa road construction.
He claimed that if the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo government had not stopped the cocoa roads contract, work on the stadium would have been completed.
“The Cocoa Board funded the New Edubiase Sports Stadium project, which was part of the Cocoa Roads deal. The NDC administration, led by John Dramani Mahama, acquired funding for the project before breaking ground, but the sad element is that the project has been abandoned for so long,” Yammin added.
