NSA boss in hot water for ‘lying’ about Accra Stadium maintenance – Citi Sports Online


The National Sports Authority has come under heavy criticism over its decision to hold a music concert at the Accra Sports Stadium on days it earmarked the facility for maintenance works.

On Wednesday, December 8, 2021, the NSA announced that the stadium would be closed for two weeks to allow planned maintenance works to be carried out at the sporting edifice.

During that period, six Ghana Premier League games were set to be affected, with defending Champions Accra Hearts of Oak, who play their home matches at the Accra Stadium, forced to relocate to the Cape Coast Stadium. Legon Cities meanwhile, have settled for the El-Wak Stadium.

But barely a week after the NSA’s announcement, GT Bank announced a week long music concert to be staged at the stadium starting Friday December 17, 2021.

On Monday 13th December, 2021, visuals emerged of the event organizers setting up a stage on the pitch in readiness for the concert.

This sparked outrage from GPL clubs and sports journalists alike, who took to social media to call out the NSA for their ‘deceit’, with others going as far as calling for the NSA boss, Prof. Peter Twumasi, to be sacked.
