The initiative requires each region to conduct trials and select its top sportsmen and women, who will then compete against athletes from other regions.

In a Facebook post on Saturday ( 6 July) after launching the initiative in Kumasi, Bawumia said Ghanaians must harness the power of sports to build a stronger and united Ghana.
