Sani Ndanusa, the Minister and Chairman National Sports Commission, yesterday, said the main venues for next monthâ€™s Fifa Under-17 World Cup are ready to host the cadet championship.
But Ndanusa expressed his displeasure over the slow pace of work being carried out at some of the facilities.
Ndanusa, who toured the facilities at the Abuja centre to inspect the facilities, was disgusted at the level of work when he visited the Fifa Goal Project.
The painting was as if contracted to nursing pupil, and the fixing of some of the fittings were badly done; a development that infuriated the NSC boss to direct urgent and speedy execution of the project.
He inspected among other places, the Aguiyi Ironsi Cantonment, Old Parade Ground in Area 10, the Medical facilities, Accreditation Unit and the training pitches of the Abuja National Stadium.
â€œFrom what Iâ€™ve seen, the training pitches is about 70 per cent completed, and in the next one week some of these projects must have been completed based on what the engineers on site told me.”
â€œWe are trying to put these facilities in place so that our football would be the best for it after the Fifa Under-17 tournament.
â€œIâ€™ll be here again next to ensure that the corrections are madeâ€, Sani Ndanusa directed the workers at the Goal Project.
