Following the collapse of a floodlight mast at the National Stadium in Surulere, Lagos, the Minister of Youths and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has announced the temporary closure of the stadium.

The minister made the announcement after inspecting the collapsed mast and assessing the condition of the other three masts.

He noted that the effects of age and weather elements were visible on the masts, which are over 51 years old.

In the interest of public safety, the minister has ordered a temporary closure of the stadium and surrounding facilities, and comprehensive rehabilitation and upgrade of the edifice will be carried out through the ICRC.

The concession process towards fully privatising the stadium, which began last year, will also be expedited.

The minister has requested the cooperation of the public during this time of extensive restrictions around the stadium.
