By: Michael Boateng
To build strong relations between its workers and ensure healthy bodies and minds for effective productivity, the Northern Network Services of GRIDCO Ghana Limited, on Friday May 25, 2012, organised an inter-area fun games in Techiman in the Brong-Ahafo Region.
The games were organised for the three areas within the Northern Network Services of GRIDCO, namely Kumasi, Tamale and the host area, Techiman.
It was all fun at the football park of the Techiman campus of the Valley View University, as the workers engaged in some aerobics before the commencement of the games, which included soccer, tug of peace, sack race, table tennis, and some indoor games such as draughts, Oware, cards and ludo.
The Director of the Northern Network Services, Engineer Reverend Samuel Frimpong Kwoffie, reiterated that to have a united working force achieve its corporate goals, the management of GRIDCO thought it prudent to organise the games.
Rev. Engineer Kwoffie further indicated that the fun games was a strategy to let the workers from the three areas know themselves, and for effective coexistence for them to realise that they had a common goal to achieve.
He said it is the hope of GRIDCO that the games would be an annual event for the workers to exercise their bodies and relax their minds after several days of hard work, and to have refreshing minds to work harder in fulfillment of the company’s objective.
“Unity is the foundation of competence and success, hence the organisers of the fun games did well and deserve commendation,” Rev. Engineer Kwoffie stated.
He, however, advised the workers that though they were having fun, they should not forget that after the fun games much was expected of them to deliver to the expectations of GRIDCO.
Techiman, the host area, won the football competition with four points, followed by Tamale area with two points, and Kumasi trailing the two areas with a point.
Though Kumasi performed poorly in the football competition, they proved that when it comes to the other games like sack racing and indoor games, they were next to none.
Kumasi area won almost all the games aside football, where they were the worst participating team.
