The Oyo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has advised Governor Seyi Makinde of the state to refund the sum of N5.2 billion spent on the remodelling of Lekan Salami Stadium to the coffers of the state without wasting more time.
DAILY POST recalls that the Lekan Salami Stadium located in the Adamasingba area of Ibadan has been remodelled by Makinde.
The Interim Management Committee (IMC) reportedly described the soccer pitch of the stadium as below standard and unplayable.
The APC on Thursday in a statement made available to journalists called on Makinde to either refund the money or risk being dragged to the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission, ICPC, to account for money spent on the remodelling of the stadium.
The APC statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Wasiu Olawale Sadare described the remodelling of the stadium as a failed project.
The APC said: “Most of our people who visited the stadium in Adamasingba to watch the recent home matches of our darling team (3SC) against El-Kanemi Warriors and Nasarawa United respectively had given an unpleasant report about the whole stadium facility, particularly the soccer pitch which has just been confirmed as an eyesore by the IMC.
This is against the impression which the Makinde administration had created through the mass media.
Meanwhile, the revelation coming from IMC about the sordid job done on Adamasingba Stadium did not come to us as a surprise since we had established that the present PDP administration of Gov. Makinde is synonymous with fraudulent contract awards and poor delivery
