The Executive Chairman of Amuwo Odofin Local Government Area, Engr. Valentine Buraimoh has reiterated his administration’s readiness to engage the youths meaningfully through sporting activities.
He noted that, “sporting activities are vital areas where our young men and women can be meaningfully engaged; it keeps the youths in our community busy and away from delinquent behaviours and youths’ restiveness in all its ramifications; besides, it also gives opportunity to develop their talents on their way to national and international prominence”.
The Council Chief posited this while giving his keynote address at the 2017 Amuwo Games press conference held at the Otunba Oladele Ajomale Multi Purpose Hall, Council secretariat headquarters, Festac Town, Lagos.
He stressed that the government is ready to support any developmental programmes for the youths because they are the leaders of today, hence there is need to give them a sense of belonging for them to contribute their own quota to the growth of the local government.
The Council boss commended the organizer of the Amuwo games, noting that the event would further enhance unity in the local government.
Meanwhile, the initiator of the games, Mr. Seun Ayeni noted that the event would avail the youths in Amuwo Odofin LGA the opportunity to showcase their hidden talents.
