The minister of Education Youth and Sports Dr Minkailu Bah and his deputy Algassimu Jah, the director of sports Saidu Mansaray, and the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) executive yesterday met with President Koroma at State House.
The reason why the president decided to bring these parties together to a meeting was to find a way for them to work together to meet the deadline of May 10, pegged for the renovation of the National Stadium to FIFA standards.
During the meeting both parties explained the progress they had made, considering the ban on the stadium, and the President told all parties that he needed a weekly report on the progress on the stadium.
After the meeting all parties came to the National Stadium to look at the facilities. Work is expected to start this week.
