Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq on Thursday unveiled new jerseys for Kwara United Football Club.

He said the unveiling was part of the government’s efforts to promote the current leaders of the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL).

At the event held at the Kwara State Stadium Complex, Ilorin, AbdulRazaq called on stakeholders in sports industry to redouble their efforts in promoting and showcasing Kwara United Football Club as a good brand for corporate entities to invest in.

“Today’s event fits into our administration’s commitment to promote the state’s heritage, its people and what it represents. Kwara United Football Club used to be a household name and a brand to reckon with in Nigeria. It had a longstanding history in the game of round leather. That was when this stadium complex was at its best,” he said.

“We are doing everything within available resources to reclaim the glory of our state across all sectors.

“In those good old days, the stadium complex used to play host to thousands of spectators in various sporting events. It is therefore important that we support every effort that will promote our sporting activities in the state.”

He commended the pole position of the Kwara United Football Club on the Nigerian Professional Football League table, attributing it to prudent management of resources by the team managers who recruited great players for the NPFL campaign.

“Good management is key and giving the right support to the management. They have been able to use what we gave them judiciously to get to that position. It is about having a good management who knows how to get good players and how to use them,” AbdulRazaq said.

AbdulRazaq appealed to all Kwarans to allow the jerseys to connect them with the Club, urging the people not to abandon the promotion of the jerseys for foreign clubs’ jerseys.

The Governor said the administration has commenced comprehensive facelifts for existing sports infrastructure in the state and construction of modern ones such as the ongoing twin squash courts, handball and volleyball courts, among others.

Senior counsellor and advisor to the governor and chairman of the event, Kale Belgore, urged well-meaning individuals and corporate organisations to support Kwara United Football Club in regaining its lost glory.
