DELTA State government has terminated the contract for the Asaba Township Stadium, which has been named after Super Eagles’ coach, Stephen Keshi.
Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan, who announced this at the Asaba Manner Prayer and Anointing Service, said that he had directed that the contract be re-awarded and completed within six months time.
Uduaghan explained that the contract was terminated to ensure the speedy completion of the stadium to 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 handed 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.”
He invited the founder of Our Daily Manna Devotional, who officiated at the Asaba Manna Prayer and Anointing Service, Dr. Chris Kwakpovwe, to pray against the spiritual inhibition stalling the progress of the project.
Uduaghan regretted that a lot of people were hinging the slow progress of work at the stadium on what they called the cemetery issue attached to the location of the project and therefore enjoined the man of God to invoke the spirit of God on the stadium site to neutralise any negative spiritual inhibition.
“ It is impossible to please everybody. I am not perfect, l have my weaknesses and inadequacies. So instead of criticising me pray to God to give me the capacity to do what is proper and good for the generality of Deltans so that we can move our state forward,” he said.
