KWARA TO RENOVATE 47 YEAR SPORTS HALL WITH 2 BILLION NAIRA

The Kwara State Government is set to renovate the indoor sports hall of the state stadium at the cost of N2.06bn to make it an ultra-modern sports facility.

The sports hall was constructed under the administration of Brigadier-General Agbazika Innih (retd.) in 1977.

Speaking with sports writers in Ilorin on Wednesday, the chairman of the state’s sports commission, Bola Magaji, said previous administrations in the state had neglected the indoor sports hall, adding that it led to its decadence.

Magaji, who said that Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq was determined to bring the stadium back to its pride, added that the renovation of the indoor sports hall would be completed in 12 months.

Magaji, added that the target of the state government in sports development was to take youths out of the streets and make them better citizens.
