The contribution of Sports Facility Construction expert, Ebi Ezekiel Egbe towards ensuring that adequate turfs graced all the stadiums in Africa and beyond has been noticed by some sports facility construction manufacturing companies who are eager to set up a partnership arrangement with him with a view to hitting the African market.
Egbe was in Birmingham, England for the interactive session with other grounds-men from across the world and the Bayelsa born Chief Executive Officer of Monimichelle Sports Facility Construction Company stressed that he was elated to be part of the Saftex Show at the Institute of Groundsmanship Stand.
In an interview with the British Press, Egbe was more excited to describe how he felt to be part of the show and the opportunity for him to see modern equipment that can further enhance sports facility construction in Africa.
He also opined that the knowledge and ideas he has gained from his presence at the Saftex show and the fruitful discussion he has had with some sports facility construction companies have made his stay for the programme worthwhile.
“It is difficult for Africans to maintain their basic facilities because of the prevailing challenges,” Egbe began in the interview with the British Press and captured by Dasportstainment 247.com.
“I am very happy to be a member of Institute of Groundsmanship (IOG) and to be here to meet with my fellow groundsmen and broaden my knowledge of how to take care of all kind of pitches in Africa.
“It is a good opportunity to be at Saftex 2019 because I have met a lot of manufacturers and I have seen a lot of equipment that could help enhance our maintenance culture in Africa. They are quite expensive but if you want to invest in good pitches you must also invest in getting the right equipment to maintain those pitches. I have met with good manufacturers and very understanding too who want to come into the African market. Monimichelle is here to ensure that they get that opportunity.”
Dasportstainment247.com recalls that Egbe recently became a member of the Institute of Groundsmanship which has its base in London, England.
This has opened the way for him to exchange knowledge and ideas with the best groundsmen in the world and one of the rewards of this is his attendance at the Salfex 2019 where he was able to meet who-is-who is in the groundsmanship business.
His trip to Birmingham, England for the Saftex 2019 has started attracting the interest of some renowned manufacturing company in groundsmanship business who are eager to break into Africa with Egbe the link for such.
