Former Bayelsa United chairman, Rumson Baribote, has called on the Bayelsa state government and president of Moni Michelle Construction Company, Ebi Egbe, to resolve their issues (if any) out of the media space in order to move the state forward.

Baribote said this on Friday in a chat with Sportsyarn.online in his reaction to the misunderstanding between the two parties over media reports of the unconfirmed ban imposed on the Samson Siasia Stadium in Yenagoa, Bayelsa state, ahead of Bayelsa United upcoming CAF Confederation Cup game against CS Sfaxien of Tunisia.

“My own take on this matter is to call on both parties to settle their differences if there’s any, in order to resolve all pending issues”.

“Again, if there are areas to be plugged, the authority should look at it and fix it to eliminate this type of development”.

Speaking further, the former Nigeria Premier League (NPL) chairman added. “I still don’t want to believe that Moni Michelle will really come out to attack the state because he is a Bayelsan”. ‘But, ifi there are facts to that effect, then it should be presented in the public dormain so as to caution him because it won’t be good for such to be coming from a son of the soil”.

“But, to the best of my knowledge there is no official statement from CAF stopping Bayelsa United from using their home ground of Samson Siasia Stadium. I have seen the list of stadiums approved by CAF which the NFF has made known, but not a ban on the venue in Yenagoa”.

“I just hope that all these issues would be  resolved to make sure that Bayelsa United represents the country well on the continent”, said Baribote.

The Bayelsa state government through the Sports commissioner, Daniel Igali, on Friday accused Egbe whose stadium construction company handled the re-construction of the Samson Siasia Stadium of sponsoring media attacks on the state.

Nigeria’s CAF Confederation Cup representatives, Bayelsa United, are preparing to host Tunisian side, CS Sfaxien, in their next game of the continent’s second-tier club competition.
