He said this in a series of tweets on Sunday.

According to Dare, the sports ministry rejected the bill.

The minister explained that fund was not available, adding that there would be an outcry if Nigerians were told that N81 million was used to cut grass.

He tweeted, “The ministry was given a bill. The Ministry did not accept. It will be detrimental to spend such an amount. And it can be better invested.

“If we tell Nigerians we used N81m to cut grass, which is not even available, there will be an outcry.

“The funds are not really there for us and that is why we are partnering with private investors to bring back the key components of our infrastructure.”
