The Speaker of Kaduna State House of Assembly, Dr. Aminu Abdullahi Shagali has renewed the pledge that sports in the state would be given all the required attention.
Shagali stated this while speaking to newsmen when confronted to comment on the badminton competition organised by the Arewa Badminton Club in honour of the Speaker in Kaduna State.
He explained that the football academy being mulled by the state government is just the beginning of things lined up for sports development in the state.
The Speaker said that the House of Assembly being led by him, would support all bills that would contribute to the social well being of citizens of the state.
“Sport is strategic to the development of this state. It is important because it brings youths together to engage competitively in a positive way, keeping them away from crime and other vices,” he said.
He commended the organizers of the Kaduna Speaker Veteran’s Badminton Championship, assuring them of his support in all subsequent editions.
