Teslim Balogun Stadium ready in December- Sports commission



The Director-General of the Lagos State Sports Commission (LSSC), Oluwatoyin Gafar, says the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere, which is under renovation, would be ready in December.

Gafar disclosed this in an interview with the Nigeria News Agency on Wednesday in Ilorin.

The commission’s director general, who said the level of work done was at between 75 and 80 per cent completion stage, expressed confidence that the contractor would meet the December delivery date.

“I was at the stadium recently with the Honourable Minister and with what I saw, the stadium should be delivered at the due date.

“All other materials are there, the turf, everything is almost readily available,” Gafar said.

He said Lagos was ready to host the world if given the right to host the female World Cup by FIFA.

“If Lagos is ready, it means Nigeria is ready,” Gafar said.
