Presenting the report to the club’s chairman, Paul Bassey, the head of the committee, Emmanuel Udoh disclosed that all the facilities and installations inspected were in good condition and adjudged to meet international standards. Mr Bassey congratulated the committee for delivering on their mandate and assured that the report will be given due consideration. “I want to really thank this committee for painstakingly carrying out this important assignment. Although we know that the Nest of Champions is well maintained and it is the best in this country, your task was to go and ascertain the readiness of that stadium in preparation for the commencement of the new football season. “Before the League Management Company LMC visits, we will forward this report to help facilitate their task and to tell them how ready we are. It’s true that many venues in this country are not good enough to host league and continental games but it’s our belief that with this type of inspection, things will change for the better. “We have been without football for too long, and I want to use this opportunity to join my voice with other stakeholders to appeal to the Federal government to facilitate the commencement of football because there are thousands of youths and their extended families who depend on the business of football for their survival.
