Dangote To Renovate MKO Abiola Stadium
The minister for sports and youths development has hinted that the MKO abiola stadium in Abuja is coming back to it's glory days as Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote is set to carry out a renovation on the stadium.
He made this known while fielding questions from journalists on Thursday, 7th November. His words: Yes, Abuja is coming back up,” he said. “Already we have gotten Dangote, I can say that he has agreed to bring back the Abuja football pitch, the light and scoreboard. “Work will start in another one week or two weeks. And we will use the same model, we will adopt the pitch model for several of our stadia. At least, the three other big ones. We are looking at between now and March we should have four big stadia, foot scoreboard, FIFA scoreboard, And I think given time, within a year this country should be ready to host virtually any FIFA soccer tournaments.”
