Right from the creation of Bayelsa state in 1996 till date, the only stadium in the state is the Samson Siasia sports complex which invariably implies that as the only stadium in the state, there is need for constant renovation.In the light of this, the main bowl of the stadium which has been overstretched presently needs massive renovation. This therefore informed the reason why the Bayelsa state government engaged the services of Monimichelle Sports Construction Company, a one stop sports facility developer that is known all over the world. A recent visit by our correspondence to the sports complex reveals that the main bowl is presently undergoing major renovation.
Without any doubt, the renovation of the main bowl can only stand the test of time with the usage of quality materials which is a function of who handles the project.
So, the engagement of Monimichele Sports Facility Construction Ltd to handle the renovation works did not come to many as a surprise because of the deep seated integrity the company has built for itself over the years and all over the world. Mr. Ebi Egbe, the Director of Monimechelle Construction is one of the four FIFA match agents in Nigeria and has been working with the sports industry for over twenty years as a FIFA licensed football agent. With integrity in place, we can safely deduce that the main bowl of the sport complex will soon compete favourably with its counterparts anywhere in the world.
This is due largely to the fact that Monimichele Sports Facility Construction Company is reputed for providing unparalled services and products range modern sport facilities. Besides, they constantly source and introduce new and innovative products to sport facility development/construction industry.
A chart by our correspondence, with the Director of the company, Mr. Ebi Egbe reveals that the company is presently constructing inbuilt drainage system with perforated pipes under the main bowl that will not allow the turf to be waterlocked whenever it rains. This has actually confirmed the statement that the company has never built any turf that easily retains water.
We also gathered that the track facility in the main bowl is being built with synthetic surfacing, stripping and design/turnkey materials in line with world best practices.
Recently, Amaju Pinnick , Chairman of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) who visited Bayelsa state took time to pay a visit to the main bowl to have a first information about the ongoing renovation work was marveled and said at completion, Super Eagles will definitely use the facility for training which will generate revenue and promote football tourism.
Quite surprisingly, Mr Ebi Egbe, the director of this globally renowned company uses his personal resources to complement the effort of the government in renovating the facility, which attests to the fact that this gentleman is a rare patriotic Bayelsan with the urge to particularly give his people the best and Nigeria as a whole
