Central Regional Minister Kwamena Duncan has lauded members of the Mfantsipim Old Boys Association (MOBA) for giving back to their Alma Mater.
He said this in his speech delivered at the official opening of a new basketball court at the school earlier today in Ghana’s Central Region capital, Cape Coast. The project cost One Million Ghana Cedis ($172, 898) and the edifice is equipped with a stand for fans, changing rooms and washrooms.
The impressive edifice was funded by members of the 1970, 1980, 1990 and 2000 Year Groups of the prestigious MOBA to mark the school’s 144th anniversary.
Due to COVID 19 related restrictions, the high number of past students and visitors who grace the special celebration was absent though a healthy attendance was observed on the special occasion.
Minister Duncan-a former student of Mfantsipim-was full of praise to the various groups for backing the project which is the first of multiple edifices in a grand scheme to equip the school with a sports arena.
High ranking dignitaries were present to grace the occasion and Head of Physical Education Ebenezer Appiah and Basketball Team Coach Isaac Mensah were thankful to the Association.
Mfantsipim is the most decorated outfit in Ghana’s biggest High School Basketball Tournament-Sprite Ball-after winning five titles and playing in nine finals.
