Rumours reaching my famous left ear has it that certain bad eggs in Rivers State government are on the move to sell Elekahia Basketball Court, the only civic court currently open to the general public in Rivers State.
According to Bobby’s Facebook post, the iconic basketball court is about to be sold to a private citizen and to be used for a totally different purpose. This is coming after the loss of Elekahia Estate Park to FSP Housing project.
The Basketball court has served multiple purposes in recent times, events, sports and other creative activities by creatives within and around the city, losing it at this point would be a set back to the creative industry.
Bobby Rak says let’s #resistsaleofbballcourt
Rumours making rounds in the iconic Elekahia Housing Estate is that some unscrupulous elements in Government want to sell off the Civic Basket Ball Court in the Estate to a private citizen to be demolished and used for another purpose. We are calling on all well meaning Rivers persons to resist this move if its true, and urge the Government to resist such attempt. After the loss of the Estate Park to FSP housing project the Basket Ball Court is the only Civic Basket Ball facility open to the general public in Rivers State.
