GOV. ABDULRAZAQ RECEIVES KWARA ADORABLE ANGELS

Date: 2020-11-19

-Says Availability of Facilities Will Stimulate Productivity, Victories

- Huge Profits Abound in Commercialising Sports

Some days after the state Handball Team, Kwara Adorable Angels, won the first position trophy and other twelve laurels at the just concluded 2020 Prudent Energy Handball Premier League held at the MKO Abiola National Stadium Complex, Abuja, the Kwara State Governor, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, received the winning angels today, 18 November, 2020, in the Government House.

The visit was to present the trophy and prizes to the Governor and to air their aspirations, challenges and requests.

Recall that Governor AbdulRazaq had earlier paid unscheduled visit to the team when the competition was on to boost the morale of the handball players.

Receiving the trophy and prizes, the Governor congratulated the young female athletes , who, he said, thoroughly impressed sports enthusiasts and the nation with their stellar performance.

He recounted how the state had dominated the sports sector, especially the squash game, in the past, attributing the decline in the stateís zeal and excellence in sports to unavailability of facilities.

AbdulRazaq then stated that if Kwara players have access to modern facilities and if the existing facilities are upgraded, strong hopes abound that the state will be taking a lead position in the sports industry.

He also noted that it is high time the state commercialised sports to ignite and drive in economic boost for the state.

The Governor submitted that the triumph was a product of the tripod of trials, faith and commitment, imploring the young girls to continue with their sheer patriotism for their state.

Earlier, the Speaker, Kwara State House of Assembly, Rt. Honourable Yakubu Danladi, commended the team and all the technical hands who worked assiduously to see that the success was achieved.

Honourable Danladi ascribed the victory to the texture of progressive policies and developmental initiatives, which, he said, are the hallmarks of Governor AbdulRazaq's elixir in tackling state's matter.

Introducing the team to the Governor, the Commissioner for Sports and Youth Development, Mrs. Joana Nnazua Kolo, informed the gathering that the Prudent Energy Premier League was the first national competition the team would attend, adding that the presence of the Governor at the venue of the League in Abuja enlivened the young players and had an impact on their determination to thrive.

She further stated that the team has brought honour and glory to the state, saying this marks for the state an era of development, victory and positive transformation.

Also at the event were the House Leader, Honourable Olawoyin, party stalwarts, Ambassador Yahaya Seriki, Comrade Musbau Esinrogunjo, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Sports and Youth Development, Bar. (Mrs.) Iyabo Funke Banire, Director, Sports Development, Alhaji Abubakar Olusola Shehu, Director, Kwara State Sports Council, Coach Alarape Ibrahim Atanda and others.

Meanwhile, the angels had earlier visited the Deputy-Governor, Mr. Kayode Alabi, and the Ministry of Sports and Youth Development.
