Good things also comes from delta , Stephen keshi stadium is one of them, since this year the stadium have been under construction, the government are working and we are seeing it.
Hopefully after the completion delta state will  be having the biggest and conducive stadium in Nigeria.

Earlier this Thursday the minister for sport Barrister Solomon Dalung a visit to the Stephen keshi's stadium in Asaba where the 21st African Senior Athletics Championships will be holding from August 1-5.
The minister who was conducted round the edifice by the chairman of the Local Organizing Committee, LOC for CAA Asaba 2018 Chief Solomon Ogba as well as the Head of Technical for the championships, Yussuf Alli expressed great delight at the quality of work done at the stadium.
In a statement issued by Olukayode Thomas, CAA Asaba 2018 Head of Media and Publicity, Dalung said the facilities put in place at the Stephen Keshi Stadium are not just good enough for the African championships but they are capable of even hosting the IAAF World Championships.
The Minister admitted that a lot of work has been done since his last visit to the stadium and he specially thanked Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for leaving another legacy in sports in Delta state and Nigeria as a whole.
Dalung pointed out that the sporting family in Delta State and across Nigeria would forever be grateful for the excellent work midwifed by the
Delta State governor and the members of the LOC for CAA Asaba 2018.
The Minister for Youth and Sports also pledged that the Federal Government will offer support to Delta state to ensure that Asaba put up a world class championship in August.
According to the minister, the gains of hosting the African Senior Athletics Championships is not limited to Delta State hence the Federal
government will lend support in anyway they can since it is for the collective good.
Meanwhile, the minister has also expressed great optimism that Team Nigeria will do well at the African Championships having confirmed that the country’s best legs across the world including those that missed out on the Commonwealth Games are expected to be present in Asaba.
The minister noted that the athletes all know what accrues to them if they win medals in Asaba; hence they have been preparing and would
definitely give their best shot as they compete with the rest of the continent.

He further explained " i can confidently assert that with what I have seen here, our capacity to even host world championships is possible and this is because apart from the infrastructure, the equipment that has been installed and are being installed can serve and host the world,” he said, emphasising, “I must again, commend the government of Delta state for not only taking responsibility to host, but for this massive and durable legacy which the governor has invested; the sports community will live to remember him and his legacy and I am indeed impressed.”
He added, “this championship is an African championship and Nigeria is hosting, so, there is already existing partnership between the federal government and Delta State government.”
Explaining the nature of the championship, the Minister of Sports, stated, “this championship is a Senior African Championship, meaning that participants are professionals, so, they are coming here to either defend their titles or to upturn existing titles and make newer records and those who will emerge victorious here will emerge as African champions and they are going to take us to the next level.”
He also, clarified his roles in the crisis rocking the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) saying, “in democracy, the tool and the weapon for every individual is to express his discontent, so, that should not be magnified to be a crisis.”
