    A STADUIM THAT HAS BEEN ABANDONED SINCE YEAR 2011 DUE TO NEGLIGENCE OF FG BEFORE DANGOTE TOOK OVER THE RESPONSIBILITY OF RENOVATION.

      Let’s assume you don’t know, why don’t you ask instead of making a foolery of yourself.
      Dangote came in under the ministry’s adopt-a-pitch campaign programme which is very good initiative by international standard. We must learn how to praise good initiatives mostly that the entire globe is now focused on the CSN for Nigeria sports reportage. The country actually needs more organisations and private individuals to buy into in.

    Since it is the mandate of the Sports Ministry to renovate the existing stadia in the country to boost grassroots sports development, it has our supports. Our problem hasn’t been renovation or refurbishment but rather, maintenance culture, an area the present crop of Nigerian leadership must ensure that the green lush which automatically stands for our national identify needs to be protected. I see Hope93 alive.

    • Quite objective and there will be nothing to add. The issue with a comment like yours, is that the stadium will be closed against others making it looking empty. Let’s allow others to comment whether meaningfully or otherwise. You have a great comment in any which way.

    For the first time in many years, something good is coming out of Nigeria but my take here is, Minister Sunday Dare commented that whatever was done at Moshood Abiola was limited to the lush, light and scoreboard. What about the video assistant referee otherwise christened VAR in football? VAR is currently making waves throughout Europe, Asia and America. My advice to the Honorable Minister is that VAR should be factored into any arrangement by way of leading the pack in Africa.
