As part of the agenda to develop sports in the Tarkwa-Nsuaem Municipality, Hon. George Mireku Duker-MP for Tarkwa Nsuaem Constituency donated GHc50,000.00 to the management of Medeama SC, based in Tarkwa.
The donation is to support the financial activities of the club as a motivational drive for the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League Season.
Hon. Mireku Duker has also been directly involved in securing an amount of US$ 150,000 seasonal sponsorship package from Goldfields Ghana for Medeama SC.
Through his lobby, Goldfields is currently constructing a US$ 16 million state-of-the-art Stadium in Tarkwa which is about 70% complete. When done, it will boost the sporting activities of local clubs in Tarkwa.
He indicated that a special fund for the purchase of a new bus for Medeama will be established in May this year.
As a founding member of Medeama SC, the MP pledged to continue to lobby the other mining companies to sponsor Medeama SC in the coming seasons.
Finally, he has resolved to sponsor two (2) Tarkwa-based sports journalists for the upcoming 2022 world cup in Qatar.
“Together, we shall make Tarkwa-Nsuaem a major sports development hub in Ghana”, he added.
