Sports enthusiasts in Ogun State have been assured of a better future when the immediate Past Commissioner for Youth and Sports now the Hon. Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Hon Afolabi Afuape handed over his group that gave maximum support to the emergence of our amiable Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun,MFR.
Hon. Afuape vowed his support for the ministry stressing that the group will be useful in providing progressive information both locally and internationally towards sports development in the state.
Hon. Afuape agreed that his tenure as the Hon Commissioner was unable to achieve much in area of sports development due to paucity of funds.
