The state government have done much for sports in the state, so we must do our very best to put smiles on the faces our numerous fans. And the only way to make them happy and do more for us is to win laurels.”

I know that this year will usher in positive results for us. So I want to use this opportunity to thank our amiable Deputy Governor, Rt. Hon. Philip Shaibu and all members of the sports fraternity in Edo and Nigeria for their support. Wishing the house a glorious Happy New Year and multiple blessings”. He concluded
