The Deputy Youth and Sports Minister-Designate, Opoku Bobie has told the Appointment Committee that, the Ministry would not allow the country’s sporting facilities to deteriorate as it has put in place measures to make them modern sporting edifices in a bid to improve the sporting infrastructure.

On calls for the decoupling of the Ministry of Youth from Sports to allow it to prioritize youth development issues and effectively play its oversight role in ensuring the development of capacity and to coordinate efforts in youth development, he said it is not in the best interest since majority of stakeholders in Sports are the youth.
