Phase I of the project is expected to commence in two weeks and lasts for four (4) months.
The reconstruction of the pitch has been segregated into phases and as such, subsequent phases will see to the construction of spectator stands and dressing rooms.
The move to convert the facility into an Astro Turf became necessary after the green grass on the pitch dried up while the Member of Parliament, Mr Salifu Briamah's football league organized a match.
The Municipal Chief Executive, Mohammed Tamimu, together with the Presiding member and constituency executives were present at the short event to hand over the pitch to the contractor to commence work on the park.
