Mr. Divine Bosson, Ho Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), has called for
stakeholder collaboration towards addressing challenges affecting the development of the Ho
The facility, a known landmark of the Municipality and a popular venue for football games, had
failed to progress beyond an undeveloped pitch and an open spectator stand since it was
established decades past.
Mr. Bosson who was opening the 2022 Volta Regional Division Two Middle League on
Monday, said the Assembly had considered the facility, and looked forward to enhanced
stakeholder commitment towards its development.
“The Assembly is aware of the current pathetic situation of the Ho Sports Stadium and my
desire to support the relevant authorities to help in addressing them have not received the
needed co-operation yet,” he said.
The MCE noted revived interest in sporting activities in the Region, and the rejuvenation of
football and other sporting clubs, and assured that his office would help deliver the needed
attention for a fully developed sports industry.
Let me use this opportunity to say that my office will stop at nothing but support and promote
sports activities holistically,” he stated.
Mr. Bosson commended club owners, coaches and others holding up the sports, and asked
sportsmen not to “relent in their efforts, but with perseverance, sacrifice, and absolute reliance
on God, the sky will be the starting point”.
The middle league pits eight teams from the Volta and Oti Regions against each other in what
would produce one to represent the Region at the Division One League.
Mr. Daniel Agboka, Regional Football Association Chairman, told the Ghana News Agency
(GNA) that the organisation of the tournament was being enhanced to help raise the standards
of the teams “technically, administratively and sports wise”, while business opportunities in the
arena were being explored.
“The euphoria around football in the Volta region has been down but it is being awakened” he
said, adding that the performances of the various clubs were being assessed, and hinted at the
institution of an award scheme for sports in the Region.
