As a Nigerian it hurts me deeply as I write because the pride of our nation, the national stadium surulere has become a rubbish dumping site.
if you cast your mind back,our national stadium was a great place of pride with the scintillating goal by yakubu Mabo of mighty jets of jos heralding our national pride in 1972,That was the first goal scored on the opening of the stadium.
Many memories have been made at the stadium like the 1980 heroic nations cup win with the likes of Christian Chukwu and Segun Odegami.
where did we go wrong is the question that keeps ringing in my head,only to think that the national stadium was the cynosure of all eyes until the Abuja stadium was built.
I visited the stadium and it was baffling what I saw
