-Ayotunde Ayanda

The Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Mr Sunday Dare has hinted on what the Federal Government plans to do revive the Obafemi Awolowo Stadium Complex, Ibadan.

 

While speaking to journalists at the seminar for online media hosted by the Southwest Group of Online Publishers (SWEGOP) at the Ilaji Farms and Resorts, Akanran, Ibadan, the Minister claimed there is an effort to work on the stadium.

 

In his statement, Sunday Dare said ‘I may not be able to come there and speak on the plans because I don’t want to start receiving calls. The approach we want to adopt is what we are doing with the National Stadium, Lagos. We are trying to look for people that will partner with the government on that project. They will build, operate and return to the government after running it for 15 or 25 years. We achieved what we have done with the National Stadium with the partnership with Chief Kessington Adebutu and that should be ready in June.
