from @jidesanwoolu – The heavy downpour today did not deter us from visiting the National stadium in Surulere, Teslim Balogun stadium, also in Surulere, and the Onikan stadium on Lagos Island, ahead of FIFA’s inspection of facilities for next year’s Female under 20 world cup.
I went alongside the Deputy Governor, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, Hon. Minister of Youth and Sports, Mr. Sunday Dare, Hon. Commissioner of Youth and Social Development, Mr. Segun Dawodu amongst other dignitaries
The FIFA’s inspection team are expected to visit our state later this year or early next year to ascertain our level of preparedness to host the games come next year.
We have given our word that we are willing and capable to host the Female under 20 World Cup and we would be ready when that time comes.
We are aware of the necessary logistics needed by our visitors during the games such as, Hotel accommodation, Transportation and Security. All these will be looked into and made available before the world Football Governing Body visits Lagos.
