Adamasingba Waterlogged Pitch: … So That You Will Not Be Misinformed| By Azeez Akeem

As usual, members of the opposition failed to disappoint me. Yesterday was the commissioning of much talked about and first of its kind remolded Adamashingba stadium.

Until the unveiling yesterday, the stadium was in a very deplorable state, to say the least. The contractor, Peculiar had gotten the job purely on merit on the account of his pedigree which includes the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City which hosted the National sports Festival. He had done several sporting event centres for the National Sport and other states. As you are reading this, He is working in other stadia across the country which include Teslim Balogun Stadium Lagos State, Yenegao Bayelsa state, and a host of others. The contractor got the job exactly one year ago with a duration of 18month. The most talked-about- football arena which is part of Phase one of the project was delivered before schedule. Isn’t that Record-breaking in an Environment where contractors abandoned projects mid-way.


As a matter of fact, the past administration of Gov Ajimobi had contracted the renovation of Track to a contractor who collected Mobilisation fees only to abscond from the project site without lifting a finger. Nobody has spoken about that.


Another Contractor of the past administration also got Saki Township Road who had been paid billions of Naira only to abandon the project without delivering 30% of the Scope of work. When the scope of work vis a vis cost analysis was carried out, the so-called contractor is owing to the state N800m. I can go on and on but for whatever reason, we should move away from primordial politicking. Those who say it can’t be done should not disturb those who are doing it. GSM administration is building more mini- stadia across the state which include, Saki, Iseyin, Eruwa, Bodija, Bishop Philips Iworoad, Ikolaba and Olubadan to mention a few. For the first time in decades, Oyo state hosted international stars and played a match under floodlight and there was no power outage or Security breach.

The cry of waterlogged pitch is ventilated largely by members of the opposition. This is not new. Football lovers across the world have seen worse situations in the biggest and iconic stadia. Google is your friend. Just ask Google.

The state is moving forward and like they say in the United States, You ain’t see nothing yet. Wait for more GSM Effects in your area.
