The Ghanaian Ministry of Youth and Sports has offered its support to the National Paralympic Committee of Ghana (NPC-Ghana) in hosting the 2023 African Paralympic Games.

The National Paralympic Committee of Ghana President Mr. Samson Deen has expressed interest in contesting for the Presidency during the 2021 General Assembly and Elective Congress of the African Paralympic Committee.

A statement from the Ministry of Youth and Sports reads: “the Ministry and government commit to offering all necessary support, logistics that will make hosting the African Para Games in 2023 possible as we believe the able leadership, we will be able to ensure a smooth and successful games experience if implemented.”

The Ministry of Youth and Sports has endorsed the candidacy of Samson Deen, President of the NPC-Ghana, in contesting the Presidency of the African Paralympic Committee (APC). During the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games in Japan, the standard of Africa’s performance sharply declined, causing a worrying situation for the African continent.

Deen believes he holds the key to positively change the fortune of African nations at the level of the game. The interest in para games across Africa keeps rising, with nearly 250 million African viewers watching the recent games on television.
