The Chief Executive Officer of the group, Ebi Egbe told newsmen on Thursday that he was at the governor’s office to balm all the hindering sore spots in the reconstruction, and the governor has promised to release funds for the completion of stadium.
“I can assure all Enyimba fans that their team will soon return home. The governor has looked at my presentation against the backdrop of rising costs and has given approval to the variation in the cost of the project. In a matter of days we will start with the installation of the grass.
“One thing that is clear is that, the governor is passionate about the stadium project. On our part, we won’t disappoint,” Egbe said.
Enyimba were forced to take to Calabar as their official home ground yet again for the new season, after hopes of returning to their traditional home at the Aba township stadium seemed dashed by insufficient funds, but with the latest development, they should move back to Aba ìn no time.
