The Ghana National Sports Authority (NSA) is set to fumigate Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Thursday 16 April 2020 in the fight against coronavirus pandemic in the country.

The stadium has been shut-down since February this year for renovation works with clubs such as Asante Kotoko and King Faisal relocating to a new venue for their league matches.

The statement read; “The Baba Yara Sports Stadium was recently used to host Ghana 63rd Independence Anniversary Celebrations on Friday, 6 March 2020.”

“As a consequence, the venue witnessed high influx of people from varied backgrounds and locations during the onset/outbreak period of the COVID-19 in Ghana”.

“The probability of the facility being infected with the  virus is therefore very high.”

“Respectfully Hon, I will be most grateful if the Regional Coordinating Council could assist us urgently fumigate the Baba Yara Sports Stadium to complement government’s targeted efforts at disinfecting vantage highly patronized public facilities in the region and the country at large, with the view to curbing this raging menace.”

Meanwhile, the NSA boss Professor Peter Twumasi has disclosed that renovations works at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium is set to be completed by October this year despite COVID-19 outbreak.
