The Jigawa Commissioner for Information, Youth, Sports and Culture, Alhaji Bala Ibrahim, said the Dutse Ultra-Modern Stadium would be completed before December 2017.

Ibrahim made this disclosure when the executive member of the state’s Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) paid him a courtesy visit in his office in Dutse on Friday.

He explained that the stadium would be provided with capacity areas for volley ball, lawn tennis, hockey and boxing among other track and field facilities.

The commissioner said that the Gumel and Birnin Kudu mini stadia would also be upgraded.

Ibrahim said the completion and rehabilitation of sports facilities in the state will go a long way to encourage healthy competitions and unity among youths.

The chairman of SWAN, Mallam Ahmad Muhammad, said that the team visited the commissioner to express support for the efforts of the state on sports development.

Muhammad called on the government to appoint SWAN members into the sports committees wherever it organized competitions and other activities in the state.
