The Regional Sports Development Officer (RSDO) Madam Salamatu Alhassan who only came three months ago has already initiated steps to clearing the debt.

Speaking exclusively to savannanews24.com, Madam Salamatu expressed worry over the accumulated debt but says she had arranged with management of the utility companies on the modalities of payment.

” I came only in January this year to meet this debt. But thankfully I have taken steps to paying it off. We have agreed to pay ten thousand (GH10,000) monthly to GWCL. But ECG, we are still negotiating and have yet to arrive at a figure”.

Madam Salamatu also disclosed she’s lobbying the government to come in and settle part of the debt they owe.

The Aliu Mahama sports stadium is one of two brand new stadias that was put up ten years ago to host the Cup of African Nations, CAN 2008 tournament.

It has since played host to several activities including sports and conferences.
