Yussuf Alli Excited As Edo State Gets Set To Receive Best Sports Facilities Award

The joy of Edo State Sports Commission Chairman, Olympian Yussuf Alli, knows no bounds this morning as Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, prepares to receive the above award courtesy of Sportsville on March 1st, 2024 in Lagos.

Alli whose National Record remains unbroken to date, has this to say; “this is one award that is factual and real. Nobody in the sports industry can dispute the world-class facilities we have in the State.

“The Samuel Ogbemudia Sports Complex houses one of the best facilities not only in Nigeria but Africa.

We also have other facilities scattered around the state.

That’s why Edo State is now the destination of sports in Nigeria.

As we speak, we are preparing to host the NPFL Youth League finals, and you can be sure the young boys will enjoy the use of our top-class facilities.”

Edo State has become a reference point when it comes to facilities in the nation, hosting almost all the top tournaments in the past few years.

The award-winning long jumper says the people of Edo State and indeed Nigerians have cause to be very proud of Governor Obaseki’s vision of using sports as an empowerment tool for the youths of the State.

“This is paying off now as our mandate to raise over 10,000 athletes is right on course,” he added.

Edo State came tops in the government-owned facilities category, just as Remo Sports Complex owned by Kunle Soname got nominated in the private category.

The award for the State with the Best Investment In Sports goes to Delta State.

This year’s awards ceremony comes up on Friday, March 1st at the Prestigious EKO CLUB, Surulere, Lagos under the Chairmanship of ex-Green Eagles Skipper, Dr. Segun Odegbami, MON.
