The Managing Director of Fatgbems Groups, Ajibola Gbemisola, said plans are underway to partner with Nilayo Sports Management Limited on sports development in Nigeria. Gbemisola stated this during the Lotus Bank Abeokuta 10km Race in Abeokuta, Ogun State, on Saturday.
The Fatgbems CEO said the 10 km race brought out the beauty of athletics in the state, rating the event high. He said, “When approached by the Managing Director of Nilayo Sports Management Limited, Chief Bukola Olopade, to be part of the Abeokuta 10km Race, I looked at the previous editions and saw the impact of the athletics event among the youths in Nigeria."
"The standard is high, and I am happy to identify with sports in Nigeria." We are working to have a five-year partnership with Nilayo Sports to promote not only marathon events but sports in Nigeria.
"I am also working assiduously on how to partner with the Ogun State Government in the annual Governor’s Cup." The 10 km race is top-notch; I can see that we had winners from not only Nigeria but Kenya.
"This has shown that this is an international event, and Fatgbems is glad to identify with sports in Nigeria.” Gbemisola revealed that Fatgbem will use sports as an avenue to meaningfully engage the youths and channel their energy into productive ventures.
He said, “I am a sportsman, and I involve myself in sporting activities."
"I see sports as an avenue to take the youth out of the street and meaningfully engage them.”
