The Chairman of House Committee on Sports, Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Moshood Oshun has commended the state governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu over what he described as the consistent policy to develop sports in the state.
Hon. Oshun recently played a host to the Caretaker Executive Committee of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN), Lagos State chapter in his office in Alausa, Ikeja where they had a discussion on how Lagos SWAN and the House of Assembly would have mutually benefited relationships in the ongoing legislative year.
Oshun told his guests how Governor Sanwo-Olu, since he assumed office, has left nothing to chance to ensure that Lagos remains the hub of sports in Nigeria with his administration’s support for the development of sports which is visibly seen and evident everywhere across the state in terms of administration and infrastructural development.
“This is a great performance which I must commend our governor for, and with this executive support, I believe strongly that Lagos will continue to be the Home of Sports and for sports athletes,” Hon. Oshun said.
