Enugu govt bans non-sporting activities at Enugu Rangers home

Enugu State Government has ordered that the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium Indoor Sports Hall, Enugu, be used for only Sporting activities, revealed the Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Vitus Okecchi on Thursday.

Okecchi told the News Agency of Nigeria in Enugu that the order became necessary to enable the state government to rehabilitate the hall.

NAN reports that the stadium, located on Ogui Road, Achara, Enugu is a multi-purpose stadium and the home stadium of Enugu Rangers.

According to Okecchi, a lot of work needed to be done in the Indoor Sports Hall.

“Some of the facilities, such as the leaking roof needs to be mended. It is unfortunate that the Indoor Sports Hall has been used for religious purposes and others. Within a short time, it will be used for the purpose it was built,” the commissioner said.

The commissioner, therefore, directed the stadium manager not to allow the hall to be used for non-sporting activity.

“That hall is purely for sports and nothing else.”
