Irabor Quiet On Liberation Stadium

Chairman of the League Management Company, LMC, Nduka Irabor says they are still open to deal with clubs on the issue of stadium inspection but are yet to make an official statement on the Liberation Stadium.
An LMC team led by Irabor himself inspected the Port Harcourt Liberation Stadium on Monday, home ground of Dolphins Football Club and says the time to make a statement is not now.
“We are still open to business. We are going to collate our findings sometime during the week and our verdict on the clubs will be known but so far so good, I believe we are open to business in the places we have been to”, Irabor said.
The League Management Company team inspected the playing pitch at the Liberation Stadium and also took a look at the referees’ dressing room as well as locker rooms of the home and away teams.
The LMC chairman asked to see the media tribune, the stadium generator as well as the toilets at the stadium and seemed impressed.
As an alternative measure, the LMC team also visited the new Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium at Omagwa and took some notes.
Meanwhile, Rivers State Sports Commissioner, Fred Igwe says the conditions given by the LMC to register for the league are not new to the teams involved.
Igwe who was part of the inspection at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium told news men after the tour that the League Management Company, LMC should understand the situation in Nigeria as they insists on the rules and regulations.
Igwe said most clubs are owned by the government and for them to actualize the pre-registration conditions, they required at least one year to meet the conditions.
“These conditions are not new to us as they have always been there but you know we are government clubs and cannot do things without a budget which has already been passed.
“In government you wait for the budget cycle which is one year, so if they give us that, I’m sure we can fulfill the conditions”, Igwe said.
