The government, through the Coastal Development Authority (CODA), has commissioned and handed over an Astroturf pitch to the Tarkwa – Nsuaem constituency.

The project forms part of the vision of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to provide each constituency with a modern multi-purpose sports facility.
The commissioning took place over the weekend, and was attended by some government officials and traditional leaders. Present were the Member of Parliament for Tarkwa-Nsuaem, George Mireku Duker; the Municipal Chief Executive, Benjamin Kessie; the Queen mother of Apinto Divisional Council, Nana Abena Boaduwaa II, and a host of former national football stars.
Speaking during the commissioning ceremony on behalf of the Chief Executive Officer of CODA, Mona Gertrude Effah, a deputy CEO, said several Astroturf projects had been constructed in all six regions within the coastal zone under the Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme (IPEP).
According to her, IPEP is one of the government policies under the Akufo-Addo administration that allocates $1 million to each constituency for special infrastructure projects and social interventions.
“Projects are determined through stakeholder engagement and bottom-up needs assessment processes. CODA leads the implementation of IPEP in 109 constituencies in the six regions that make up the Coastal Development Zone,” she noted.
