 A former Champion in the Senior Athletics Championship and a holder of 1982 Commonwealth Games in Brisbane, Australia, Mr. Samson Oyeledun has supported the idea of the establishment of Ogun State Sport Commission by the State Government.

 Oyeledun, while chatting with journalists at the MKO Abiola International Stadium, Kuto, Abeokuta, said the creation of Sport Commission in the State was long overdue, adding that the move would boost the State’s economy and encourage healthy rivalry among stakeholders.

 He commended the present administration for recognising the importance of the Commission in sports development, which he noted would encourage multinational companies to invest and sponsor sporting activities.

 The Sport Champion who noted that the clamour for the Commission had been on for over ten years, urged Governor Abiodun to fast-track the establishment to curtail bottleneck between the Ministry and the State Sport Council.
