Minister Orders Illegal Occupants Out Of Moshood Abiola Stadium



The Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare has given 25 days ultimatum for illegal occupants of Moshood Abiola Stadium to vacate the facilities for proper rehabilitation to commence.

The sports minister stated this yesterday during an inspection tour of the stadium, who was joined by permanent secretary of Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, Gabriel Aduda and Stadium renovation partners from the Federal Capital Territory Authority (FCDA).

Recall that, Dare had announced over the week that the sports ministry and its FCT counterpart has agreed to partner in giving the stadium which has been in comatose a facelift.

He said the ultimatum became necessary as the ministry was ready to embark on serious maintenance and rehabilitation of the national sports edifice.

Places visited include Generator Room, Diesel Room, and Conjunction Panel Room.  Outdoor Hall of Fame, Water Fountain, Family Picnic slop, designated entrance to the hall of fame strip and 4,000 space car park.

It would be noted that, the minister during the unveiling of the Stadium’s signage last week Friday said that the renovation work will cost $1.5 million.
