The Minister of Youth and Sports Development Barrister Solomon Dalung has expressed unhappiness with the state of medical equipment wasting away in different storages at the National Stadium, Abuja.
Barrister Dalung was stunned to find that equipment worth more than N280m, imported sixteen months ago were wasting away at the stadium.
The equipment include HP Cosmos testing treadmill, anti gravity treadmill, body composition analyzers, ice making machines, nebulizers, boxes of PR Power body torso, boxes of dumb bells and dumb bell racks, body sculptors and muscle toners. Other equipment includes selector chest press, digital lean machines, steppers, cones, gymnastic mats, etc.
Some of the equipment were said to weigh up to 1000kg. The minister had demanded an explanation on why all the equipment was mounted and left to waste.  “Why will the Sports ministry buy such expensive machines and allow it to waste? So you people are now experts in importation and dumping?” The Director, Sports Medicine, Ministry of Sports Dr Abdulkadir Muazu said there was no space to mount such heavy duty equipment. “This building cannot take the entire equipment when installed and we need the center to be close to the athletes when they need treatment.
