Kwara United will outshine opponents at CAF Confederation Cup — AbdulRazaq

Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara has expressed optimism that the Kwara United FC would outshine its opponents at the CAF Confederation Cup, assuring the team of support to boost their chances in every outing.

Speaking in Ilorin at an event to honour him with an Award as a “Pragmatic Leader with vision and mission for Sports Development in Kwara State”, the governor gave the assurance.

AbdulRazaq said the government had succeeded in strengthening the capacity of the team with investment and right motivation, noting that the team had done well over the last two seasons to deserve the continental ticket.

“What did we do in the Sports sector? We did not change the people we met, but we gave them the right motivation to perform.

“It is about commitment. I thank you all for your commitment to Sports. You have gone, within two seasons, from relegation to continental.

“A round of applause for all of you. I am very confident that you will make Kwara very proud,” he said.

He thanked the supporters of the club for the honour and noted that the award would encourage the government and other awardees to do more for the sports development in the state.

He said the event indicated that their immeasurable contributions for Kwara United and the state as a whole were recognised.

He said, “I congratulate the Kwara United team, the management and supporters for this wonderful feat and for putting this together.”

“When we came on board in May 2019, the state we met Kwara United was a direct reflection of how we met every other sector.

“Kwara United had been relegated from its deserving position. That was exactly what we found in education, healthcare, infrastructure and all sectors of governance. A total collapse of the state.”

Chairman Kwara State Sports Commission, Bola Magaji appreciated AbdulRazaq for giving the commission adequate support to succeed, expressing joy that the team was going for continental games during his time.

The event was organised by the Kwara State United Football Supporters Club.

The Governor was honoured along with other sports-loving individuals and financiers of the team, including the APC House of Representatives candidate for Ilorin West/Asa constituency, Mukhtar Sagaya.

Others who were honoured were Rotamedics Pharmacy Chief, Dr. Abdulraheem Malik; Alhaji AbdulRasaq Baba-Alakuko and Alhaji Wahab Abdulmajeed
