Delta State government has terminated the contract for the multi- million Naira Asaba Township Stadium.
The State governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan who announced this at the Asaba Manna Prayer and Anointing Service, said he had directed that the contract be re-awarded and completed within six months time.
Dr. Uduaghan explained that the contract was terminated to ensure the speedy completion of the stadium which has been re-named Stephen Keshi Stadium and avoid the project becoming a white elephant one.
The governor promised that he would complete all on-going projects and gave assurance that there would be no abandoned projects in the state before he hands over in 2015.
His words; “l have told God that l am not going to leave any abandoned project in this state. We have been having challenges with the contractors in charge of this stadium. It was about becoming an abandoned project, but this will not happen because it will be completed soon.”
The governor enjoined Deltans that instead of criticising his inadequacies they should pray to God to give him strength to enable him move the state to a higher pedestal.
Founder of the Daily Manna Devotional, Dr. Chris Kwakpovwe commended Governor Uduaghan for the economic transformation of the state especially the construction of the airport, roads and other infrastructures.
He also commended the state governor for making it possible for the religious programme to be held in Asaba and prayed for God to protect all Deltans.
