Monimichelle’s modern turfs thrill NFF president
Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) President, Amaju Pinnick, has said that the country’s game would grow faster than it is doing if all the stadia had good playing turfs.
Speaking after inspecting the on-going job at the Samson Siasia Stadium in Yenagoa, Amaju praised the contractor, Monimichelle, over the state of the art pitches it is constructing in the country, just as he hailed Bayelsa State for moving to get the turf back to a playable condition.
He said: “I must commend Monimichelle for bringing the latest and safest artificial turf approved by FIFA to Nigeria. I also must give Bayelsa State government kudos for embarking on the project and giving it to a competent indigenous firm. This is what other states should emulate because of our terrain. There is so much rain in this part of the world and what we need is the kind of turf Monimichelle is installing.”
He said he looks forward to playing first at the new turf alongside his executive committee members, adding, “I hope the project is completed in record time.
“I want the NFF and the rest of the world to play here during our extraordinary congress and after that I will get the technical committee to endorse it for the Super Eagles.”
Also speaking during the event, Monimichelle CEO, Ebi Egbe, assured that his company would do a good job, adding that the mission of his outfit is to eradicate bad pitches not only in Nigeria but the whole of Africa.
“From what we are doing, the turf will be as dry as a desert even when it rains heavily as it does always in the Niger Delta region. And we have a Limonta product that is safe and lush green. Our pitch made with coconut fiber and cork is like a natural turf. It is cool and players enjoy playing on it. The Super Eagles did attest to this much when they played at the Karkanda Stadium in Katsina, a pitch that was installed by us,” Egbe said.
