The Inauguration Planning Committee of His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, CON, the Governor Elect Imo State, has commenced emergency repairs at the Dilapidated Dan Anyiam Stadium, the venue where most of the activities leading to the Inauguration and the Swearing-In ceremony on May 29th will hold.

The repairs ongoing at the two major sections of the Stadium, the Grasshopper Handball Stadium and the Football pitch section are to see the place which has been abandoned by the present day government habitable for the good people of Imo State and the Visitors who will be turning out in their numbers to herald the coming of a New Imo in the coming days.

According to the Secretary of the Works/Venue Committee, Arch Chidi Clinton Okoli, the renovation exorcise is completely funded by the Governor Elect, Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, He noted that the State Government has not contributed a dime or even cooperated with the committee in the rehabilitation and renovation process.

“We are renovating all the Toilets, both the VIP and the ones at the public stands. It’s sad to note that there is no functional toilet or bathroom in this whole complex. We are also repairing all the seats. Painting the walls and fixing the barricades. The deranges are all blocked and we are cleaning all of them up. By the time we complete what we are doing here, I’m certain the place will be habitable for Imo People and our visitors”, Okoli noted.

Speaking further, He commended the Governor Elect for standing up to the challenge of rebuilding Imo, stating that Ihedioha has shown that He is indeed prepared to Rebuild and reposition Imo.

The Stadium will be hosting the Inaugural interdenominational service on Sunday, Novelty football match, the Mega youths concert and indeed the Swearing -in Ceremony on the 29th of May, 2019.
