Renovation work of the swimming pool at the National Stadium, Lagos, which began in November, 2013, has been suspended by the contractor.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the contractor handling the project was not seen on site.
NAN learnt that the contractor, O’ Jez Group, has abandoned the project since February.
The Stadium Manager, Alanamu Abolere, attributed the suspension of the project to lack of fund.
“The firm must have run out of fund to warrant the stoppage,” Abolere said.
He said the firm was already processing the release of funds to it by the Federal Government for the completion of the project.
A representative of O’Jez Group, Ifeoma Ene, declined comment on the issue when contacted on telephone.
NAN reports that the renovation of the Olympic-size swimming pool was expected to be completed by the end of March.
