The General Manager of the State Sports Council, Mr. Kunle Adeyemi, lauded the Governor for what he described as “starting strong”, noting that his visit to the stadium was an indication of his dedication to development of sports in the State.

He also solicited the continued support of the new administration to efforts of the sports council to nurture youngsters to become great sportsmen to help in achieving the set goals.
