FG To Concession Lagos, Abuja Stadiums

By Adebayo Williams

Minister of Youth and Sport Solomon Dalung has said that the Federal Government are considering the concession of the Lagos and Abuja stadiums. Dalung, who spoke after his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday said the present government would continue with the agreement signed by the former administration to concession the stadiums. He said the under utilisation of the facilities had led to the thought of the concession. He said the facilities could not be managed by the meagre budgetary allocation by the government.

He said the government had proceeded with the arrangements and  had appointed consultants and his ministry was waiting for approval from the Bureau of Public Enterprise. Dalung said the ministry would proceed to call for bids and engage the private sector so that it could run the concession arrangement with them.
