There are fears over the use of the Akwa Ibom Stadium in Uyo which has been pencilled down to host Saturday’s crucial World Cup qualifying match between the Super Eagles and their Algerian counterparts.
Feelers from the oil-rich city suggest that the Akwa-Ibom State Governor Emmanuel Udom is on a collision course with Julius Berger, the company that built the edifice and equally saddled with the maintenance.
A source told reporters in Uyo that that Governor has terminated the contract of the German construction company and they are now spurred for war that may affect Saturday’s game if not promptly addressed.
Already, we are making frantic efforts to hear from the representative of the State Government, as many are keen to see that the Eagles arrival and training go unhindered.
Saturday’s outing will be Nigeria’s 50th World Cup qualifying home match as they take on the Fennecs of Algeria
