Governor Ahmed promised to further make the state enabling for sports development by ensuring that the State’s indoor sports hall is renovated to world standard before the end of his tenure and urged the Federal Government to monitor strictly the team’s preparation for the World Cup because of unity sports generally bring to Nigerians.
