Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has arrived Asaba, the Delta State capital, on a two-day state working visit where he is billed to commission some projects, including the Stephen Keshi Stadium built by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa-led government.

The Stephen Keshi Stadium will, on Tuesday, host its first FIFA approved international friendly between Super Eagles of Nigeria and Cranes of Uganda in Asaba.

The plane carrying Obasanjo and other dignitaries touched down at the Asaba International Airport built by former Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan about 6:15pm on Sunday.
