The Nigeria News Agency (NAN) reports that Yakubu Adesokan beat his Oyo counterpart, Olabode Mimololu, to win his state’s gold and silver, while Badamasi Muhammed won the bronze medal for Delta in men’s 49 kg para-powerlifting.
Beaming with smiles, gold medalist Adesokan told NAN he was grateful to God for the victory, which he dedicated to the people of Oyo State.
“The people of Oyo State need this victory; my gold medal will motivate me more for the Paralympic Games, which I am preparing for, in the hope of God’s help and support.
“I use this medium to call on people with disabilities not to despair but to embrace sport and become better people for themselves and for society,” he said.
Mimololu, who expressed his joy at his silver medal, said it was an improvement on his first NSF outing in 2018, in Abuja.
He called on the competent authorities to collaborate with the government at all levels in the sponsorship of sports activities, in order to attract more young people away from social vices. (NOPE)
