Edo 2020 NSF: FG commends Obaseki on pace of work at refurbished Ogbemudia stadium

The Minister of Youths and Sports, Mr. Sunday Dare, has commended Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, on the pace of work as well as the standard of facilities at the newly rebuilt Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium ahead of the 20th edition of the National Sports Festival (NSF).

Dare said this after inspecting the progress of work at the stadium. He was accompanied on the inspection tour by Governor Godwin Obaseki and the state Deputy Governor, Rt. Hon. Comrade Philip Shaibu.

He noted, “I can say the stadium is 90 per cent ready for the NSF. When I came here in November 2019, the tracks were not laid and the pitch was not at an advanced stage as it is today.

“This shows clearly that there has been consistent work ongoing here and there has been commitment from the governor and his deputy to ensure the stadium is completed within record time.

In his remarks, Governor Obaseki expressed optimism that the stadium would be 100 per cent ready for the games by the first week of March, noting, “For us, the deadline is that by the end of the first week of March, this stadium should be ready so that every facility would be test run before the game.”
