In preparation for the 2018 African Athletics Competition, Delta State, Governor Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, has expressed confidence in delivering a world-class stadium for the competition.

The governor said this on Thursday when Mr. Victor Oyovbaire, Executive Producer, All Access Television Production, and his team paid him a courtesy visit in Asaba. He said that the ongoing reconstruction work at the Steven Keshi stadium would be completed soon and according to specifications.

According to him, “As the competition grows closer, I am very confident that the stadium which will host the games will be ready in the next two months for the 2018 African Athletics Competition taking place in August.”

“During the last inspection, tremendous progress has already been made and I believe that when the stadium is finished it will compete with the best stadia in the world,” the governor added.

Okowa commended the team who brought Olympic Athlete Adeseye Ogunlere on a tour of the stadium, saying: “It is good to see youths show interest in sports and I believe that at the end of your visit you will give constructive criticism because my administration is open to such, not only to receive praises.”
