- Advertisment -

The minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr. Sunday Dare has thrown his weight behind the Nigerian Police Games holding in Anambra State.

The 12th edition of the games which commenced on Saturday, would end on 7th March, 2020.

In his address at the opening ceremony, the minister said that he was happy to be in the state for the biennial sporting event and expressed optimism that the competition would discover talents as it had done in the past for the country.

“It is really a laudable achievement to see the Police, who are charged with the security of lives and property, finding time to organise sporting activities”.

“It is quite commendable and I want to urge other sectors to emulate this because it promotes unity, culture, values and community safety”.

“We do hope that new talents emerge from the Police Games so that we can have talents who can take over from our sports men and women who are ageing.”

The Nigerian Police Games has produced top athletes like Atlanta Olympics gold medalist, Chioma Ajunwa, who is currently an Assistant Commissioner of Police, former Super Eagles striker Julius Aghahowa, the late Olympic medalist Sunday Bada, as well as former heavyweight boxing champion, Samuel Peter.

Notable dignitaries in attendance at the opening ceremony included the host Governor, Chief Willie Obiano; deputy Governor of Ebonyi, Dr. Kelechi Igwe; Commissioner of Police, Garba Baba Umar, and the NFF President’s representative, Chikelue Iloenyosi.
