The minister of youth and sports, Sunday Dare says that 81 million naira needed to cut grass in MKO Staduim which is located in Abuja

The minister of youth and sports, Sunday Dare confirmed this while speaking at a conference in the capital of Nigeria, Abuja FCT

Sunday Dare while speaking during the one-day seminar organised by the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) FCT chapter, made the announcement which will stun a lot of Nigerians all over the country


According to the minister of youth and sports, the ministry approached the Abuja Environmental Protection Board (AEPB) for inspection of the weed in the stadium and was told it will cost them N81 million to cut the grass and weed all over the stadium


Recall that the MKO Abiola stadium was built in 2003 with N53 billion on a 29 hectares (72 acres) of land in the federal capital Territory, Abuja FCT

The stadium is also divided into Package A which houses the Main Bowl and Package B which houses other facilities like basketball courts, NFF office, volleyball courts, tennis courts, squash courts

The minister of youth and sports, Sunday Dare said:

“We approached AEPB to come see what can be done to clear the grass and weed in the stadium and they told us it will cost us N81m.

“If we tell Nigerians we used N81m which is not even available, there will be an outcry.

The funds are not really there for us and that is why we are partnering with private investors to bring back the key components of our infrastructures,” he revealed.
