We have taken our park back the lies are too much -Fijai Youth to a contractor

The youth of Fijai a suburb in Sekondi Takoradi last Wednesday invaded a football pitch which is currently under construction in the community.

They say they cant wait anymore and have vowed to deal with the contractor if he try to lock up the facility though its about 85 percent complete.

The project is among 6 Astroturf's which were to be constructed in Sekondi Takoradi and all have been completed except that of the Fijai town park.

A youth leader Joseph W. Eshun told our reporter Adesi Kumi that they cant continue moving from community to community looking for a place to play football.

This project started long before the other football parks but it is yet to be completed and communities who have Astroturf are not allowing us to use their facility he added.

The facility was to be completed within 6 months but the contractor have spent about a year and half on the facility due to his inability to rebuild a retaining wall to a major drainage in the area.

We know that the contractor will lockup the place when we leave but we will break it unless they go for a police guard even that, we are prepared to match them boot for boot because the lies are just too much Eshun warned.

It is not clear either the contractor will continue working on the football pitch or allow the youth to use the facility, it is anticipated that the completion of the turf will be a little longer.
