President of the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC) Ben Nunoo-Mensah believes the upcoming elections in December will do little to slow down Ghana's preparations ahead of the 2023 African Games.
In 2018, Ghana was declared host of the 13th edition of the 2023 African Games and would be the first time that country will be hosting the tournament.
With the Covid-19 setback among other things, the nation faces a race against time to complete the required infrastructure to host the games in 3 years time.
But Nunoo-Mensah believes preparations will go on smoothly without much political influence.
Also, Minister of Youth and Sports, Isaac Asiamah has hinted that Ghana would be ready to host the rest of Africa in 2023.
Meanwhile, National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer John Mahama has vowed that his regime will ensure the hosting of a colourful event when the rest of Africa troops to the country when given the nod.
The African Games is a multi-sport event held every four years with the competing nations coming from the African continent.
<>The 2023 Games will involve 20 plus sporting disciplines, 50 plus participating nations and 7,000 plus athletes/technical persons and 2 co-host cities - Accra & Kumasi.
The 2023 African Games will also serve as qualifiers for the various disciplines for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, France.
