Reacting to the victory, Mr Attahiru Ibrahim, the Special Adviser on Sports to the Kwara governor, hailed the performance of the state contingents at the fiesta.

This, he attributed to the support and commitment of the state governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, to sports development in the state.

He said that government would continue to use sports to curb youth restiveness in the state.
