SPORTS NEWS: International Sports Stadium Launched in Akwa Ibom Today

Mavins Crew at the Event
The newest sports arena in Nigeria is the Akwa Ibom International Stadium, Uyo which was just commissioned today . A Nigeria versus Ghana friendly match is currently ongoing in the stadium. The encounter not only evokes the memory of the old rivals, it is also a test for the domestic league of both countries. Edeson Online News learnt that Two people are feared dead while 20 others suffered various degrees of injuries during a stampede at the inauguration ceremony of a new stadium in Akwa Ibom state.
The President of Ghana, John Mahama and the Ivorian Head of State, Alassane Ouattara are in Uyo to open the new edifice.

Apart from Presidents Jonathan, Mahama and Ouattara, a number of governors from across Nigeria are also present.
The 30,000 – capacity venue, with a bullet –proof State Box that has 70 seats, has been described by the Vice President of Ghana Football Association, Fred Crentsil (who was sent by CAF to inspect the venue) as being “among the best you can find anywhere in the world”.

Governor Godswill Akpabio, who is the chief host, is showcasing the majestic facility, which has already been approved by the Confederation of African Football for the crucial 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier between Nigeria and South Africa on November 19, as one of the key infrastructure he has delivered for the oil-rich State.

Nigerian music group, MAVINS headed by Don Jazzy performed their famous Dorobucci song and also energetic singer KCEE performed his LIMPOPO song during the opening ceremony of the event.

Nigeria defeated Ghana by 1 - 0 in the friendly match.

That's on the surface. To me its why the Nation continues to suffer. A colossal waste of money. The stadium will go to waste cos the maintenance money will be vast. Who will use the stadium?. We don't have a commercially viable team in that state whose revenue will sustain the stadium. In a few years we'll start to see the stadium rot away like the Abuja National stadium and people will blame the new Gov for not maintaining it ignoring or not thinking why it was built in the first place.
