The ongoing construction work at the Eket Township Stadium embarked upon by the Akwa Ibom State government is to be completed before the end of the year.
Confirming this when Planet News visited the site, one of the site Engineers, Bassey Akpan said work was in advance stage in the fifteen thousand capacity stadium, assuring that with the ongoing pace, the stadium should be completed and delivered before the end of the year.
While dismissing the rumor that the stadium was only being renovated, he explained that the structure was a new project from foundation.
On the quality of the job carried out by the indigenous contractors, Engineer Akpan commended the team of Engineers handling the job and said it was designed in line with global best standard as expertise for the project were drawn from indigenes of the area through direct labour engagement.
Some of the workers at the site who spoke with our Correspondent Bassey Ibiatisuho appreciated the state government for hiring their services, saying they will do their best to ensure quality job was done.
