Ambode seeks private sector support for sports


 
Posted 1 wk, 1 day ago
 
 
 
 
 
The Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, has appealed to private sector and other stakeholders to partner the state government in sports development.

Ambode spoke on Monday at the Lagos House in Alausa, Ikeja, at the inauguration of the new boards of the Lagos State Sports Commission and the Lagos State Sports Trust Fund.

He urged the new boards to ensure even development of sporting infrastructure across the state; host and participate in national and international sporting events in order to expose athletes and coaches in the state to international standards.

He said, “It is our belief that the funding of sports should not be the responsibility of government alone. This informed the establishment of the Sports Trust Fund whose mandate is primarily to interface with the private and public sectors to raise funds for sports development.”

While the trust fund is chaired by a former Lagos State Deputy Governor, Mr. Femi Pedro, the Lagos State Sports Commission is to be headed by a seasoned sports administrator, Dr Kweku Tandoh.

Other members of the trust fund are Olaposi Agunbiade (Executive Secretary), Dr Enitan Oshodi, Oladipo Awe, Adekoyejo Adejumo, Segun Odusanya, Akindele Ogunlana, Kweku Tandoh, Babatunde Bank-Anthony, Moyosore Ogunseinde, Prof Ademola Abass, Fola Padonu and Omolola Essien.

Members of the sports commission are Babatunde Bank-Anthony (Director General), Olaposi Agunbiade (Executive Secretary), Gboyega Edu, Toyin Okenla-Ojeaga, Fatai Olukunga, Abdulazeez Tijani, Babatunde Fatayi-Williams, Oluseyi Akinwunmi, Bolaji Adeniji-Adele and Gbenga Kuye.

Responding on behalf of the appointees, Pedro thanked Ambode for giving them the opportunity to serve the state, assuring him that the boards would perform beyond expectations.
