The Abuja National Stadium is now wearing a new look, thanks to the Minister of Sports and Chairman of the National Sports Commission (NSC) Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi who issued a directive to the Director of Facilities at the NSC Abubakar Magaji that the stadium’s glory must be restored.
When our correspondent visited the stadium over the weekend, we saw that the grasses and weeds had been cut.
Repair works at the stadium started on Friday, September 14th and the following day, a major part of the renovation had been carried out.
‘’The Minister, Mallam Abdullahi is not only interested in the renovation and repair of National Stadium Abuja, but he is interested in ensuring that the routine work in all the facilities owned by the government go on, while we wait for funds for their proper renovation and management’’.
It will be recalled that the Honourable Minister issued a query to the Director of Facilities, Magaji, over the sorry state of the Abuja Stadium recently, and shortly after the query, routine works began at the stadium, and a few days later, it is wearing a new look.
