Five of the ten Youth Resource Centres being constructed across the country are set to be completed and handed over by the end of March 2023, that is according to the Chief Executive Officer of the National Youth Authority, Pius Enam Hadzide.
The construction of the facilities started in 2018 and was supposed to take nine months to complete but five years down the line not a single has been completed.
A Joy Sports campaign tagged Bush Resource Centres has been highlighting the neglect and abandoning of the facilities which have already seen about $20 million invested in the projects.

Five long years have passed since the Koforidua Youth Resource Centre broke ground, but the dreams of a state-of-the-art facility remain unrealised.
