MOBA 1983 Year Group donates Ghc1.4M for construction of Mfanstipim Sports Complex


The Mfantsipim Old Boys Association (MOBA) 1983 year group has donated an amount of GHC 1.4 million to the Association towards the construction of the Mfantsipim Sports Complex.

The event took place at Margins Group’s head office, and was made possible through the efforts of two MOBA members, Moses K. Baiden Jnr., CEO of Margins ID Group, and Alex Dadey, CEO of KGL of the 1983 and 1979 year groups respectively.

Prior to the donation, MOBA ’83 Year Group was entrusted with the responsibility of raising GHC 800,000 for the sports complex, with Mr. Baiden Jnr., who is a member of the ’83 fundraising committee, tasked to secure the necessary funds for the project.

Understanding that more substantial contributions were necessary to reach the target set, MOBA ’83, led by Mr. Baiden, reached out to Alex Dadey of MOBA ’79, a gesture that drove Alex to give an equal amount of GHC 700,000 to match Margins ID Group’s contribution.

“Recognizing the significance of the project, I approached the subcommittee of the board of Margins Group and appealed to them to allocate GHC 700,000 from their educational initiative under their Corporate Social Responsibility fund to support the project,” Mr. Baiden  recounted, adding: “It was successful, and Margins Group, on behalf of MOBA ’83, has graciously contributed GHC 700,000.”

Mr. Dadey also reminisced about his journey as a student-athlete at Mfantsipim and how the school groomed and nurtured his talent in sports, saying: “Mfantsipim is where I discovered my talent and passion for sports, and now, it’s my turn to give back.

Our donation is not just financial; it’s a way of expressing our gratitude to the school that shaped us. We have come this far because of Mfantsipim,” he added.

The MOBA President, Capt. Paul Forjoe, expressed his gratitude for the substantial donation, emphasising the positive impact it would have on the school infrastructural development.

“In accepting this donation, I urge all old boys to emulate this excellent gesture as a sign of love and commitment to our school,” he noted.

The Mfantsipim Sports Complex project, once completed, will stand as a symbol of excellence and provide an outstanding environment for students to nurture their athletic talents and embrace a culture of physical fitness.

It is expected to also serve as a valuable resource for the broader community, promoting health, wellness, and the spirit of togetherness.

In attendance to the brief ceremony were distinguished MOBA members, including James Morgan, Executive Secretary of MOBA; Isaac Andoh, Vice President of MOBA ’83; Ato Williams (’79); Frank Oye (‘83); and Ferdinand Aggrey-Fynn (‘83).
