Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, says the ministry needs between N5bn and N10bn to renovate sporting facilities across the country.
Dare made this known in a statement signed by his media office on Thursday.
The PUNCH had reported on Wednesday that the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja was in a bad state one year after it was named after the presumed winner of the 1993 presidential election, Moshood Abiola.
A worker at the stadium, who spoke on a condition of anonymity, wondered why billionaire businessman Aliko Dangote had not taken charge of a part of the stadium, as promised by sports minister, Sunday Dare last year. (Punch)
