The Executive Director of International OlympAfrica Foundation, Mr. Alhassane Thierno Diack is on a working visit to Ghana to supervise the construction of a sports center of excellence for kids and youth at Amasaman.
The Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC) who has acquired the Amasaman site has been able to assure the OlympAfrica Foundation to prepare the land and use ir for its main purpose.
The OlympAfrica Foundation had previous pumped over 250,000 dollars into the project during the era of Hon. B. T. Baba, but it was stopped and Ghana was suspended, due to poor accountability and lack of transparency
