The major work at the Asaba township stadium include the spectators stand/tartan track among others.

This was one of the decisions taken during the state Executive Council meeting held in Government House, Asaba,.

The approval is in fulfilment of the pledge made by the State Governor, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, that the stadium will host an international athletics competition next year.

Speaking after the meeting, the state Commissioner for Information, Mr. Patrick Ukah also said that approval was given for the renovation/reconstruction of infrastructural facilities at Urhobo College, Effurun, Uwvie Local Government Area, as well as the revalidation of contract approval and payment for additional works for the construction, furnishing and equipping of Model Primary School, Burutu, in Burutu Local Government Area.

The approvals are a manifestation of the determination of the state government to give children of school age quality education in a conducive learning environment, Mr. Ukah revealed.

According to the Commissioner for Information, the council further approved the revalidation of the improvement and expansion works of the water supply scheme in Bomadi.

This is in addition to the approval of the construction of Trans Warri/Ode-Itsekiri Bridges and access roads (completion of 12.8 km main alignment) in a bid to link the riverine communities in that axis to the cities of Warri and Effurun, and the approval of the dualization of old Lagos-Asaba.

There have been several accusations that Gov Okowa has been deceiving Deltans with substandard roads, while in Ika ethnic nationality where he hails from, all the road projects being constructed are solid roads with stone base that will stand test of time. The hope then for the people of Delta State is that the Asaba township stadium and all the other approved projects would measure up to the expected high standard.
