Why Kweku Yeboah stormed Peace FM Studio after Sefa Kayi’s comment: Dan Kweku Yboah, communications director for the Local Organizing Committee of the 2023 African Games stormed the studio of Peace FM during a live program hosted by Kwami Sefa Kayi.

This was after Sefa Kayi questioned the prudency of embarking on the capital-intensive African Games, in 2023 while a country like Australia is backing out of major tournaments due to economic infeasibility.

“Australia have pulled out of the Commonwealth Games so Ghana should also pull out or? I want to start a discussion on whether Ghana should pull out or not. Even the rich have pulled out, what about us?” he quizzed.

Aside the economic benefits, Kwaku Yeboah believes that hosting the African Games will help address the challenges in the sports infrastructure space.

“I’m a member of the LOC for the 2023 African Games. I was in bed when I received a call that Chairman said we should cancel the competition. So I woke up from sleep and decided to rush to my boss and explain things.

“I was told you claim Australia has pulled out of the Commonwealth Game so if the rich people are running away then we also should. It’s a valid point but Australia has hosted the commonwealth five times, this would have been their sixth but for us, this is the first time we are hosting,” he said.


Tackling a question from Nana Akomea of the NPP on the cost-benefit analysis of hosting such a tournament, Dan Kwaku Yeboah emphasized that sporting events bring a variety of socio-economic benefits and Ghana will benefit greatly from the tournament.
