Gov. Godwin Obaseki of Edo on Wednesday assured that renovation work at the gymnasium hall at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium Complex in Benin would be completed soon.

The governor gave the assurance after an inspection tour of facilities at the stadium complex ahead of the 20thNational Sports Festival (NSF) tagged “Edo 2020″.

“I have been assured by the contractor that the gymnasium hall will be ready very soon because all the materials are already here.”

He also said the lawn tennis courts, swimming pool, power and security system for the games, as well as the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) facilities, were ready.

Obaseki assured further that parking spaces for non-Games vehicles would not be too far from the stadium as traffic would be properly managed around the stadium.

The governor also said that Edo athletes would be moving into camp in a week’s time while accommodation had been secured for visiting athletes.

“No fewer than 3,000 hotel rooms are available on commercial basis for the games. The owners of hostels of educational institutions and hotels around the Benin metropolis have been very  supportive in this regard,’’ he said.
