Kwara State government has awarded the renovation of the Indoor Sports Hall of the Stadium Complex in Ilorin to Metro Fittings and Accessories Nigeria Limited at the cost of N925.8million.
The stateâ€™s Commissioner for Information and Communication, Alhaji Mahmud Ajeigbe, disclosed this yesterday while briefing journalists on the outcome of the council meeting held at the council chamber, Government House, Ilorin.
The contractor was given nine months to complete the renovation job at the complex.
