Officials Wrangle Over Maintenance Of Lagos Sports Facilities

The management and maintenance of sports facilities in Lagos is causing ripples among top officials in the state, reports ’TANA AIYEJINA
Last month, the Confederation of African Football approved the newly-renovated Agege Stadium, Lagos, for MFM FC’s 2018 CAF Champions League home games.
Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode had promised to upgrade the stadium, popularly known as Soccer Temple, after MFM qualified for Africa at the end of last season. The stadium got CAF’s approval just 24 hours to the Olukoya Boys’ CAF Champions League second leg match against AS Real Bamako on February 21.
“This is a wonderful achievement and I am glad to announce that this stadium has been approved by CAF to host continental matches starting with the game between MFM and AS Real Bamako,” Gambian Martinez Gomez, who was CAF’s match commissioner for the encounter, said.
A former Special Adviser on Sports to Governor Akinwunmi, Deji Tinubu, had reportedly sold the idea to renovate the community stadium to the governor before his demise in January.
The upgraded stadium today boasts a state-of-the-art VIP lounge, fully equipped dressing rooms for teams, match officials and dedicated offices for official purposes and post-match conferences.Read more.
