Recall that the Bayelsa State government had before United’s first game awarded the contract for the renovation of the stadium, but the contractor is said to have messed up the playing turf.A video had emerged on how a tricycle popularly called Keke Napep was being used to work on the pitch constructed by Monimichelle Group.

The CEO of Monimichelle, Ebi Egbe, a Bayelsan, has since said his company was not involved in the renovation work being done on the 5,000 capacity stadium.Meanwhile, the management of Bayelsa United has denied the claim of a ban on Samson Siasia Stadium in Yenagoa by CAF.

The media officer of the club, Hananell Jackson, described the claim of CAF ban as frivolous and untrue. “CAF officials are currently taking final inspections on the Stadium and they are satisfied with the facility,” Jackson said. Read more: LEADERSHIP Newspaper »
