FG to remove illegal structures from National Stadium

The Federal Government has said that every illegal structure at the National Stadium in Lagos will be removed.

The Minister of Youths and Sports, Sunday Dare made this known while speaking on Channels Television’s Sports This Morning.

The minister said that the move will be part of the government's effort to return the stadium to its original blueprint.

“We intend to return the National Stadium, Surulere to its original blueprint. We intend to make sure that every illegal structure that has been put in place that is not part of the blueprint will be removed,” he said.

Dare also revealed that rooms will be created for individuals who are interested in concessions in the stadium.

“We are also looking at Adopt a Sports Centre and a Pitch. We have approached Chief Kessington Adebutu who has agreed to make available half a billion naira to start fixing some of the key facilities in the stadium.

“I think that will help because that can open a slight window to make some of the facilities in Surulere to be functional,” he said.
