Great examples of these include the success recorded in National sports festival, National Youths games, 2nd edition of Para sports festival and various Associations outing at National and international levels.

5  On the note of the above, I want to commend some Associations for their outstanding performance in the year 2023 viz

Subsequently I implore other Associations to wake up from slumbering, I believe we can all do better with enabling environment and facilities at our disposal.

6. We also took other important steps, such as redeeming the lost glory of sports in Kwara State by reviving schools sport to help in talent discovery at grass root level.

7. Over the past year you’ve all demonstrated over and over again our strengths as Commission and made clear that when it comes to United Group, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. This is because we are an ambitious team that sets high goals and a talented team that works hard to achieve the set goals.

11. The year 2023 is not without challenges, we have reviewed our last year’s operations, our areas of strengths and weaknesses had been identified. We hope to build on our areas of strengths and improve in areas of weaknesses.

12. To improve on area of weaknesses, this will propel us to take some critical and radical decisions in line with Public Service Rules.

13. We are committed to make changes on the system we inherited from defunct Sports Council. On this note I want to implore all staffers to flow in the direction of tides because wind of positive change is blowing and you either bend or break to this wind of change.
