Plans have reached an advanced stage to see Enyimba return to their home patch, the Enyimba International Stadium, Aba.
Enyimba have prosecuted domestic and continental fixtures in Port Harcourt, Umuahia and Calabar for two seasons now as a result of refurbishment work in Aba.
The crucial rehabilitation work and re-grassing of the pitch have now reached an advanced stage and the ‘People’s Elephant’ is now set to return to a familiar slaughter ground.
“The materials for the stadium have come in,” club Chairman, Felix Anyansi Agwu told 90minutesgoal.com.
“And it would be good for us to return to Aba with the title.
The people of Aba would then welcome us with joy. I keep commending the Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu (The Abia State Government is the sponsor of Enyimba International FC), for his commitment.
“It is not easy. The reconstruction came at a very difficult moment: when the contract was awarded, the dollar was at a particular level; subsequently, it has gone up, but he is still committed to it.
“It might also interest you to know that the materials for final laying of the grass have arrived.
“So, the contractor has given the signal: as soon as the container is cleared, the job will be completed.
“We are very hopeful that the team will start the new season in Aba, come next season,” he said.
