Wike: Real Madrid Football Academy ready in Rivers August
River State Governor, Nyesom Wike

Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike on Thursday said that the Real Madrid Football Academy in the state would be completed in August this year.

The governor in a statement signed by the Commissioner for Information and Communications, Paulinus Nsirim, said he would enable the academy to begin full activities in September.  He said the new deadline was following the contractors’ claims that 28 days were lost on the project due to COVID-19 pandemic.

Wike extended the completion date when he visited the site of the Academy at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium in Elekahia, Port Harcourt, to ascertain the level of work.

The governor said the academy would become operational in September when the new academic session is expected to begin.  He emphasised that the contractors would have no reason to delay completion of the project beyond August 2020 as the state government would fulfil its financial obligation.

The governor noted that the pitches and the administrative offices were ready but that the academy could not commence activities without hostels and the classrooms.

Say this simple prayer:

Heavenly Father, I come to You in the name of Jesus Christ.
I believe that Jesus died for my sins and rose again for my justification. I repent of my sins and ask for forgiveness. I ask Jesus to come into my heart and reign as my Lord and Saviour.  I receive Him by faith, I am born again!
