The renovation of the long-abandoned football pitch of the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja will begin on Tuesday. This is a joint effort of the Ministry of Sports and Aliko Dangote.
The pitch re-grassing, the lighting and scoreboard of the arena will also be put in shape. The renovation is expected to be complete in 24 weeks.
The reconstruction works would have commenced earlier but were delayed due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in March.
