The All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial candidate in Lagos, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode today hosted the winners of the Third Edition of the Under-15 Football competition organized by the Jagaban Fans’ Club.
Mr. Ambode acknowledged that by mere participation, all the teams and teenagers that participated in the competition “are all champions”.
Speaking to the teenagers, the governorship candidate said that the present government of Governor Fashola had done well in the education sector, but promised that he will surely do even better “I will create a much more better environment of learning for you, that will groom you to become better and accomplished adults”
While identifying with them as a sport-lover too, Mr. Ambode encouraged the team players with his success story, urging them to make sure they maintained a “mental balance” between studying and the utilization of their footballing talents.
The winning team, Maradona Football Club, and the 1st runner-up, Lakeside football academy, and the 2nd runner-up, The Great F.A, who couldn’t cease from clapping, were presented with trophies and cash gifts by the governorship candidate.
The leader of the Jagaban Fans’ Club, Engineer Olukayode David Ishola, expressed appreciation for Mr. Ambode’s reception and kind gesture, promising continual support as he gave the vote of thanks.
