Speaking to reporters during the inspection, Governor AbdulRazaq emphasized the need for a comprehensive upgrade of the stadium, considering its 40-year-old design. 

He highlighted that similar attention would be given to the Lafiagi Stadium in ongoing efforts to enhance sporting infrastructure across the state.
