Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has visited Obafemi Awolowo Stadium, formerly Liberty Stadium Ibadan, in continuation of his tour of sporting facilities and visit to team Nigeria athletes, preparing for the Olympic Games.
On a visit to the Sports hostel, the Minister promised that all illegal structures in the building would be taken off.
He used the occasion to appeal to private investors around the country to take advantage of the situation and turn most of the hostels to hotels so as to generate revenue for government.
During this tour, the minister visited two Olympic-bound athletes Lawal Rufiyat Folashade and Liadi Taiwo, appealing to them to do their very best in ensuring that they put up a befitting performance at the Olympics.
Both athletes expressed gratitude to the Sports Minister and thanked him for the cash incentive which they said is a morale booster to their preparations.
