  Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, has directed immediate release of additional funds to the contractor handling the resurfacing and renovation of the Enyimba International Sports Stadium at Aba.

This is “with a view to quickly returning Enyimba FC of Aba to their home stadium,” Enyinnaya Appolos, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, said in a statement issued on Friday in Umuahia.

He said that “following the latest payment released to the contractor, the state has paid over 70% of the total contract sum. Work is therefore expected to accelerate at the stadium with completion expected within this year, to enable the Peoples’ Elephant resume playing at home in Aba.”

Enyimba FC of Aba is Nigeria’s most successful football club with two back to back champions league trophies and multiple local league and FA trophies.
