Ms. Joana Nnazua Kolo, the 26-year-old Commissioner for Youth and Sports in Kwara State has hit the ground running, following her inauguration on Friday, December 13th.
Kolo, who was among the 16 commissioners sworn in and assigned portfolio, has started on a good note, beginning with the inspection of sporting facilities in the state.
The very next day after her inauguration as commissioner, Ms. Kolo was at the Kwara State stadium in company with the Director of Sports Council, Alh. Tunde Kazeem.
Kolo, who expressed disappointment at the poor state of facilities at the stadium, described what she saw as “pathetic”.
Reporting her visit to the stadium through her official twitter account (@JoanaNKolo), the young Commissioner notes that the edifice “obviously lacks Government presence.”
She also promised that the government of Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq would not window-dress but rather work to deliver a better stadium.
In her words, “Our Government under the leadership of Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq will start from the scratch to deliver a better Stadium for sporting activities in the State.”
The Kwara state stadium, which is multi-use, has 18,000 capacity. It was last renovated in 2010.
