The Delta Government says it has approved the completion of the second phase of the Stephen Keshi Stadium for the hosting of 2018 Africa Senior Athletics Competition (ASAC) in August.
The state Commissioner for Information, Mr Patrick Ukah, made this known to newsmen in Asaba.
Ukah said the approval was part of the decisions reached at the State Executive Council meeting.
The stadium, formerly known as Asaba Township Stadium will host the athletics meet organised by the Confederation of African Athletics (CAA).
He said that the event would unveil the talents that abound in the state and promote sports development at the grassroots.
