The President of the governing body of Rugby in Africa, Herbert Kwabena Amponsah Mensah, has lavished praises on the Local Organising Committee.
The accomplished administrator, who was elected Rugby Africa President in March 2023, recently paid a working visit to the secretariat of the LOC.
Rugby is one of the 25 sporting disciplines expected to participate in the continental multi-sport event in March 2024 and the LOC has been supervising the construction of a modern-standard rugby facility in Accra.
Speaking to Accra-based radio station, Peace FM, the former Asante Kotoko CEO spoke highly of the Local Organising Committee.
“I think the LOC is doing a great job. I met with the LOC Chairman [Dr. Kwaku Ofosu-Asare] and his committee members as well as the Minister for Youth and Sports [Mustapha Ussif] to formally include Rugby as one of the disciplines for Accra 2023,” he said.
“The LOC and Ministry of Youth and Sports have done a fantastic job. They are building a Rugby pitch at Legon. It would be the first dedicated Rugby pitch in West Africa,” he added.
