Motivated by the fact that Kaduna State is being chosen as the number one destination for hosting of national sporting events in view of facilities it boasts of, Governor Nasir el-Rufai has appealed to the Federal Government to make the space wasting away at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium available to it to further develop world-class facilities.
He made the appeal while declaring closed the maiden edition of the Ministry of Interior Games tagged ‘MIGA 2016’ at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium Saturday night.
El-Rufai who represented the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo as the Special Guest of Honour, spoke in his capacity as the Chief Host.
He said that the Minister of Sports, Barrister Solomon Dalung should convey the state’s request to President Muhammadu Buhari.
“My task is very simple, I have been asked to declare the games closed. But before I do that, I would like to inform you that our doors remain open and we are bidding to host all your subsequent editions,” he declared.
He explained that the state government knowing the potentials of sports in earning foreign exchange for the country, would always ensure that the best facilities that can develop potential sportsmen and women is provided.
“Sports is not only a unifying factor for our youths, but can keep them positively engaged and a source of livelihood which can also earn Nigeria foreign income,” he explained.
