The court, which is the first of its kind in the constituency, is part of a bespoke project being rolled out by Mrs. Owusu-Ekuful and aimed at making Dansoman the headquarters of basketball in Ghana.

“We vote for development. We vote for progress. We vote for prosperity. We vote to enhance our livelihoods and our living conditions. It doesn’t matter which party we belong to. But, if your elected representatives are working and meeting your needs and aspirations, you support and encourage them to do more for you,” the Communication Minister said at an event on Saturday, November 21, 2020, to inaugurate the facility.

“What we are seeing here today at the Dansoman SSNIT Flats, I believe is the first of its kind. Most people will fight for AstroTurfs and standard pitches and all that because football is the major sport in this country. But we can develop basketball to also be one of the big sports in this country and we are moving systematically to ensure that Dansoman becomes the headquarters of basketball in Ghana” she added.
