Launching the 27th GUSA Games, authorities at host university, KNUST, expressed readiness to hold a successful event.
Vice Chairman of the Local Organizing Committee, Prof. Addo Fordjuor stressed the University’s preparedness towards the tournament.
He hopes it will build friendship among competing institutions.
“The KNUST is prepared and ready to host the 2022 GUSA Games on our beautiful and serene campus.
