The Kwara State government has awarded the renovation of the Indoor sports hall of the state Stadium in the sum of N925.8million to Metro Fittings & Accessories Nigeria Limited.
Pilot Sports gathered that the project is expected to be completed within a duration of nine months. The Commissioner for Information in the State, Alhaji Mahmud Ajeigbe, stated this in Ilorin on Wednesday shortly after the five hours State Executive Council meeting held at the Government House.
He noted that the renovation of the facility became very important due to the uniqueness of the over 40years existence of the stadium which accommodates about 26 sporting activities.
The Commissioner added that the state government is also committed to tackling the Lassa Fever diseases which has infected another victim, stressing that Kwarans should not panic as protective equipments have been procured to arrest the situation. Ajeigbe said eight other samples have been sent out for analysis.
It will be recalled that the indoor hall built over 40 years ago is due for renovations following the bad condition of the edifice.
