Organizers of the yearly prestigious Nigeria Pitch Award, headed by Mr. Shina Phillips, has awarded the CEO of Monimichelle Sports Facility Construction Limited, Mr. Ebi Egbe for his contribution to football development and his professional advises on how the country should own its stadium turfs.
Mr. Ebi Egbe, while receiving the Recognition Award, gave account of how he got involved with sports management.
“I want to appreciate the organizers of this event, especially Mr. Shina Phillips for this good work even in the midst of adversity, he continues to recognize hard work. I pray God would strengthen you the more” he said.
Monimichelle added: “I started by giving football talents hope in this country and beyond. The records are there for clarification, so at a time I felt I should diversify about a decade ago by going into sports facility management and sports construction.
“I have passion for sports especially football thus, I decided to specialise in pitch construction” he said.
It would be recalled that this year’s Nigeria Pitch Awards marks four years since the first edition in Calabar, second and third in Kaduna while Uyo hosted the 4th edition.
