He encouraged everyone to be engaged in one sport or the other for the good of our health, because sport is a very good way to exercise the body to be healthy. He encouraged all to support the State owned football teams as revitalization progresses.

 

On the other hand, the Deputy Governor of the State, Rt. Hon. Peter Odey was very happy and excited as his team defeated Civil Service team. He said that in as much as the energy was lacking due to the fact that it has been awhile they engaged in such activity but the skill was still there, in this Season of Sweetness he encouraged everyone to be happy and exercise often to sweat and burn some fat.
