The National Monument located close to the Abuja City Gate in the capital of the country has now become a source of monumental shame for Nigeria.
Of course the current state of the stadium goes a long way in explaining the fact that our National teams have been playing in all other venues in the country anytime they have a fixture.
A lot has been said about how Nigeria lacks maintenance culture; this picture goes a long way in proving that assertion. May God help us.
If we spent close to N60 billion to build the stadium, how come we cannot afford to maintain it? Or perhaps we can afford to, but those that are supposed to ensure that the place is maintained would rather channel the funds for that purpose to “other” projects?
