Earlier, Dare said the ministry had written series of letters to the Kwara Government on the need to immortalize the football icon. Dare urged the governor to sustain his support for sports development as it was a veritable tool for engaging the youth and reducing social vices in the country.
“I want to thank his excellency for hosting our biggest youth games in Ilorin, let me inform you that we are coming to Ilorin again because of the facilities at University of Ilorin, soonest we will be around for the youth games.
“I love the fact that the governor also loves sport, I want to encourage your excellency to invest more on sports,” he added. The minister also discussed several ways of developing youth and sports with the governor in line with international best practices.
