However, checks revealed that for a 51-year-old Stadium, abandoned for 18 years and compared with others, the cost of renovation will be about what was mentioned by the Minister.NYSC Portal

Are said: “This is not true because investigations revealed that Ministry has not requested or received such money from the Federal Government.

“The Minister of Sports only mentioned the estimated amount for the complete Renovation of the National stadium, Surulere based on the submission of a company and such estimates, are subject to review; according to industry experts.

“The reactions that has followed this disclosure have been unfortunate, uninformed and retrogressive.”

He further said : “How does the mere mention of a figure, become the collection of that money? There is so much ignorance around the workings of government. “The request must go to the Federal Executive Council. If it gets there, the BPP will do a rigorous costing and approve a reasonable amount in writing, before the Minister can take it to Council. Even at the Council, it will be subjected to interrogations, questions and possible amendments before it is approved or rejected. So, the mere pronouncement of a figure does not automatically mean it has been approved or released.”

As reported by THE NATION, the Stadium in Surulere which suffered abandonment for 18 years was at its lowest ebb, before it got picked up by Dare for an upgrade.JAMB Result
