Many would have witnessed the glittering Special Awards night yesterday, October 10, 2020 at the Mcdan La Town Park, by the Ga-Dangme Unity Organization (GADUO), but for the continuous rainfall in Accra which would’ve marred the outdoor Award’s Beauty.
The maiden Awards which according to the organizers has been postponed to Saturday, November 28, at 6pm, has lined up several categories to honor at the event which is aimed at ‘Fostering Peace, Unity & Justice Before, During and After the 2020 General Elections’.
In an Exclusive Interview with Davis, Chairman of the Organization, Edward Coleman, added, that unfulfilled promised by sponsors is a contributing factor to the postponement of the Special Awards Night.
“First of all, the rain disturbed us and knowing it is an open event and also on astro-turf, we can’t go ahead with it as it must dry. Most of the Sponsorship we were expecting also disappointed us. We also felt that we could actually make a lot of impact with our Peace Message as next month is closer to the December 7 Elections.”
Dubbed the ‘Youth and Sports Festival & Tourism Special Awards Night’, the Card Playing Competition resumes from the 25th October through to 8th November at 8am each day from Chorkor, La, Osu, Nungua to Kpone venues.
Other activities that will precede the much-anticipated Awards include Soccer, Basketball and Volleyball. At the La Town Council Line Park, on the 15th and 16th November, Nima-Kanda 441 will play Town Council Line in a soccer Match, while Tudu Lebanon Youth squares it up with Town Council Line Youth. In Volleyball, La Pioneers will face Town Council Line Youth.
A finals in Soccer on Saturday, November 21, will be witnessed at the Mcdan La Town Park at 3pm.
The Awards Night will have in attendance, His Royal Majesty, Dr King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II, Ga Mantse (Abiasuma), Africa and World boxing legend, Prof Azumah Nelson, CEO of the biggest shipping firm, Dr Daniel Mckorley, Football greats, Stephen Appiah and Armah Senegal. Dancehall sensation, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, known as Shatta Wale, Ga Highlife Artist, Adane Best among others will be present.
It is the believe of the GADUO that this Awards Night will further strengthen their Unity motivate and improve the individual and organizational contribution to the growth and promotion of the entire Ga-Dangme Communities and Ghana as a whole.
