According to Hajia Oluwakemi, "Kwara is a grooming grand for badminton and squash, we are not a pushover in those games, we are sure of podium finish at the end of the week long competition."
She commended Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq for his unwavering support for the state's athletes, adding that the car reward for one of the badminton and para athletes last year was another motivation for the athletes to record a sterling performance.
