<p class="">The Minster also hinted on plans to privatise the pitch-side perimeter advertising boards like its done in developed countries.</p>

<h1>Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare has pledged to ensure the urgent rehabilitation of the Moshood Abiola National Stadium Abuja in line with international best practice.</h1>

<p class="">The minister made the pledge on Friday in Abuja when he inspected facilities at the stadium.</p>

<p class="">News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the minister inspected the main bowl, Velodrome, Media VIP center, Power house, Medical office, Technical building, dressing room among others.</p>

<p class="">He said he was impressed with some of the facilities but noted the urgent need for the rehabilitation of the main bowl, especially the football pitch which is in a deplorable state.</p>

<p class="">Dare stressed the need to come up with innovative ways to fund and maintain the facilities while hinting on plans to privatise the pitch-side perimeter advertising boards like its done in developed countries.</p>

<p class=""><em>“We are going to be innovative to see how we can get extra funding, and how we can privatise the football pitch (Pitch-side Perimeter advertising boards).</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“I don’t want to put a timeline, but it’s sufficient to say that is right at the top of our agenda,</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“Because we know it’s taking sometime and Nigerians are interested to See Super Eagles play in Abuja, the stadium will be ready soon,</em> ” he said.</p>

<p class="">He emphasised on the consistent use of the stadium while pledging to work with relevant stakeholders to make the stadium the hub of sporting activities in the country.</p>

<p class="">NAN reports that the main bowl of the stadium has been abandoned for some time, because of the poor state of the pitch.</p>

<p class="">The Super Eagles who hitherto played their home matches there have since relocated to Uyo and Asaba because of the poor playing turf.</p>
