The Vice President, Dr Namadi Sambo has been called upon to intervene in the lingering dispute between a construction company, Jagal Construction and the American International School which has hindered the completion of a multi-million sports complex for the .school located at Lekki, Etiosa Local Government Area of Lagos State.
Making the appeal in Lagos Friday, Chairman of Sports Facilities, Martins Osaele said materials worth N450m meant for the construction of a sports complex for the School were rotting away.
"Sports facilities already on ground since 2010 include material for the construction of a tartan trackfrom Mondo of Italy (the same used for the construction of the London Olympic Stadium), artificial football turf, artificial base ball turf,, plywood for flooring the indoor sports hall and 220 synthetic pathway flooring.
Osaile said if the situation was not arrested, it could have a negative impact on government's quest for private participation in sports development. "Already, 18,000 kilogrammes of synthetic glue, worth N64m has been destroyed and thrown away due to.
"I feel government can impress on both partners in the dispute to reach a meeting point for the benefit our children and future generations," Osaile said, adding that the facility could have offered numerous Nigerian kids the opportunity to train in various sports disciplines in their prime.
The proposed sports complex of the college consists of an athletic racing track.
