Ondo orders contractors to complete works on stadium

31 January 2013, 16:09

Ondo -  Yekini Olanipekun, Ondo State Commissioner for Youth and Sports Development, has directed contractors refurbishing the Akure Township Stadium to get the facility ready for the 2012/2013 football season.

A statement by the ministry’s Media Officer, Anota Adebayo, on Thursday in Akure said that the commissioner gave the directive at a stakeholders meeting with the contractors of the project.

It said the stadium project had caused a lot of embarrassment to the government, noting that the contractors had been fully paid for the job.

``The project was supposed to have been completed before the end of 2012, but suffered some setback because of the lackadaisical attitude of the contractors,” the statement said.

It said the commissioner urged the stakeholders involved in renovating the stadium to quickly complete the project ahead of the coming Nigeria Premier League, beginning on Feb. 16.

NAN reports that the stadium refurbishment had been ongoing for the past four years and that in October 2012, the people protested the delay.
