Nigeria’s leading sports facilities construction outfit, Monimichelle has offered to fix the Abuja and Lagos National Stadiums in two months.
Chief Executive Officer of the company, Ebi Egbe who spoke on Supersports yesterday said his desire is to partner with the federal and state governments in a bid to realize his vision of eradicating bad pitches in the country.
“The vision of Monimichelle as a corporate body is to eradicate bad pitches not only in Nigeria but Africa. I m prepared to partner the federal government and state governments in a bid to realize this vision. The biggest challenge facing football in Africa is the bad playing surfaces. Once, we get that right African teams would begin to rule the world because we ve got the talents. If given, the opportunity, I can fix both the Abuja and Lagos National Stadiums in two months,” Egbe said.
The Bayelsa born FIFA licensed match agent said his heart bleeds over the sorry state of both the Abuja and Lagos National stadiums, insisting that it won’t cost much to bring the two arenas back to life and end the present nomadic movement of Super Eagles round the country.
“Nigeria is probably the only country in the world,where the national team has no permanent home. It’s painful to see the NFF searching for a place where the Eagles would play any time we have a home game. Monimichelle can bring all that to an end if we are given the opportunity to fix the Abuja and Lagos National Stadiums. The job we did in Aba, Yenagoa, Katsina and Makurdi are there for anybody to see. We don’t compromise on quality and what we lay are the latest geo tech pitches that are certified by FIFA. Our pitches are like natural grass turfs that are well manicured with coconut fiber and cock. The ball behaviour on our pitches is superb and unlike rubber pitches, our turfs are user friendly and cool,” Egbe said.
