By Olayinka Elebute And Oluwole Francis
 The Super Eagles adventure in different cities will soon be over as soon as  rehabilitation work is completed  at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium Abuja and the National  Stadium,  Surulere,  Lagos.
This assurance was made  by the Minister  of Youth and sports Development Mr Sunday  when he visited the training  camp of the Home- based Super Eagles in Abuja
 According to him.”
The National team is the pride of the nation, no national  team moves  from one city to another. The Eagles deserve a permanent  home ground to give them a sense of belonging and  to maximize  the benefits  of playing at home  in a regular venue. We are working  with the companies rehabilitating the Moshood Abiola National Stadium Abuja and the  National Stadium, Surulere to expedite action to complete on going rehabilitation.
Once the facilities  are ready, we will get the NFF to get Fifa certify  the stadiums  so that our teams can have a Permanent  playing ground”
The Minister  asserted that his dream is to see the National teams have Permanent  camp as was the case in the past instead of the adhoc  arrangements  of inviting players to train for only few days before matches.
The Super Eagles  have been forced  to move from one venue to another due to the poor  states of the two National  Stadiums in Abuja and Lagos.
The  Minister had convinced  Alhaji  Aliko Dangote and Chief  Kesington Adebutu to fund the  rehabilitation work  at  the two National  Stadiums.
