The Tamale Sports Stadium has been renamed “Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium” in honour of the former Vice President.
Aliu Mahama served as Vice President to ex-President John Agyekum Kufuor between 2001 and 2009.
The choice to rename the games stadium after the late Vice President is in fulfilment of President Akufo-Addo’s 2016 campaign promise.
On Monday October 30, the President told the Aliu Mahama Foundation that the ex-veep “had so much to do with it (Tamale Sports Stadium), and I think it will be a proper monument to him, testimony to his contribution.”
Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia is expected to commission the renaming of the stadium in Tamale.
