The Chief Executive Officer of Monimichelle, Ebi Egbe has declared that his outfit builds sustainable facilities that outlive tournaments, even as he insists that that is what Nigeria and Africa need.
Egbe, whose outfit constructed the Enyimba stadium turf as well as several other pitches in the country, said Nigeria does not need what he called ‘tournament pitches’ which wither away the moment the tournament for which they are constructed is over.
“Constructing tournament pitches is nothing but a waste of money. What we do in Monimichelle is that we construct pitches that are sustainable. For over five years, our pitch in Aba has remained top notch…go and ask countries like Angola, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon what has happened to the pitches they constructed during the Nations Cup. The way forward is the nature pure hybrid synthetic pitches, which we construct. They are FIFA certified, the ball behavior and foot stability are not in anyway different from a properly manicured natural turf pitch. Our pitches have zero undulation and very safe for the end users, the players,” Egbe said.
Egbe’s outfit is at the moment constructing the Awka City Stadium as well as the FIFA Goal Project edifice in Ugborodo-Escravos in Delta State.
