Perhaps following the unscheduled visit of president Jonathan to the National Stadium Abuja recently and following the state of disrepair of the once magnificent edifice, the minister for sports, Bolaji Abdullahi, is very angry by the poor maintenance at the multi-billion Naira edifice and has issued a query to the stadium manager.
According to The SUN, Abubakar Magaji who happens to be the Director in charge of maintenance of the Stadium Complex, is not only been queried for dereliction of duty and gross insubordination, he is also in the cross-hairs following his penchant for ignoring ‘simple instructions.’
It would be recalled that the President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, recently constituted a high-powered committee made of the Sports Minister, Malam Bolaji Abdullahi; Minister of Finance, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, FCT Minister, Bala Mohammed, among others, to rehabilitate the National Stadium.
When contacted, the SA to the minister, Julius Ogunro, said though he was not aware of the query, he however, affirmed that the minister was keen to give the stadium a face lift. “The minister is concerned about the poor state of the stadium, so very soon many things would change for good”.
