Lagos will support grassroots sports

As part of efforts to discover talents, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, says his administration will provide adequate support for the growth of grassroot sports in the state.

Governor Sanwo-Olu, who made this statement at the Campos Stadium during the final of 9th edition of senator Muniru Muse under 12/15 boys and girls categories, said the state government would partner with organisers of the competition to produce competent athletes who would be groomed to stardom.

While charging the players to embrace sports and education, Sanwo-olu praised the joint support of senator Muniru Muse and senator Oluremi Tinubu for constantly organising a grassroot football competition for nine years.

Following the recent FIFA’s inspection of stadia, the Governor said Campos stadiun as well as other stadia would be given a facelift to meet the requirement of FIFA in hosting the 2020 Women’s World Cup.
