The government of Oyo state is making effort to improve the IGR through sports, many taught sport is just only football but see what has happened here today. You can see that gifts worth millions like motorcycles, refrigerators, fans, generators etc was won by participants across the 5 LGs and LCDAs in Ogbomoso.
Let me assure you, we will make sure this initiative which has been abandoned in the state for years will be widely resuscitated to promote peace, unity and love.

He assured the people that he will never relent in giving back to his people. I’m doing this because I know what it is to be poor. Yes, l have lived poor in the past but thank God l am a living testimony today. He charged others who are blessed, to come down to the grassroot and join him to eradicate poverty in our society.
I am not competing with anyone but I believe if we can also support government with the little we have, our society will live better. He thanked all the participants and assured them of better edition next year.
