Dr. Edward Omane Boamah, Chairman of the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) of the ongoing Economic Community of West Africa State (ECOWAS) Games has lauded the officiating team for their apt performance at competition that ends in Accra on Friday.
“I must admit that I have been very impressed with the organization of the games and the manner in which the officiating team has fared this far.”
The LOC Chairman told the media at a press conference on Wednesday that the bi-annual games which is yet to witness any unfair officiating to warrant protest from any quarters is indicative of the high level of performance exhibited by the officials.
The Deputy Minister also had kind words for the hundreds of athletes who have gathered in Ghana for the competition that has pieced together 11 countries on the sub region. He said the athletes have similarly exhibited such high level of performance to make every event very competitive though Nigeria sits top of the medal table after day four’.
He said the provision of accommodation has been excellent with athletes and officials occupying self-contained rooms under top hygienic conditions.
“This was evidence when though Liberia arrived at the eleventh hour without prior indication about their participation in games, we still made provisions for their accommodation, feeding and transportation without problems.”
The Games enters day six on Thursday with Nigeria topping the medal table with 33 medals. Host Ghana are second with 28 medals
