Business mogul, Jim Ovia, will be the chairman at the fund-raising event to drive the CAA Asaba 2018 African Senior Athletics Champions to be held at the Grand Hotel, Asaba on Thursday.

According to a statement issued by Olukayode Thomas, head of Media and Publicity, the fund-raising event will start at 7pm.

The Project Consultant for CAA Asaba 2018, Bukola Olopade, commended all the sponsors that have already signed on for the African Championships while urging others to follow suit because of the positive impacts of sports on the society and general development.

Meanwhile, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa visited the Stephen Keshi Stadium on Wednesday to inspect the facilities earmarked for the tournament.

While briefing the media, Okowa said that he was very impressed with what he saw as there have been serious improvements compared to the last time when he came for his routine inspection exercise.

The governor, who was accompanied by all his cabinet, said he was very sure that in six days’ time that work would have been completed fully and ready for use for the test championships fixed for July 18.

While applauding all the workers and the LOC members for a job well done, the governor cleared the air that his frequent inspection of the stadium was not because he does not trust the capabilities of those in charge but that it is a demonstration of how he is personally committed to the project.

Solomon Ogba, the chairman of the LOC, thanked the governor for his unflinching support and dedication that has helped make the stadium a reality and the African Senior Athletics Championship one which the continent is eagerly awaiting.

The championship will take place between August 1st and 5th.
