Ibadan, Aug. 22, 2019 Mr Abayomi Oke, a former Commissioner for Youth and Sports in Oyo State, has congratulated Mr Sunday Dare on his appointment as Minister of Youths and Sports.

Oke, in a statement he personally signed and made available to newsmen on Thursday in Ibadan, described the appointment as well-deserved.

The Nigeria News Agency reports that Dare, a renowned media practitioner and former Executive Commissioner (South-West) of Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) was on Wednesday inaugurated as the Minister of Youths and Sports by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The former commissioner described Dare as a technocrat, who had, over the years, demonstrated efficiency and effectiveness in every assignment he undertook.

“Dare is a hardworking man who has distinguished always himself in any assignment he undertook, both at the national and international levels,’’ he said.

Oke, who expressed optimism that the new minister would not disappoint the people of Oyo State and Nigerians in general in his new assignment, called on the people to support him.

Also, the Sports Writers’ Association of Nigeria (SWAN), Oyo State Chapter, has congratulated Dare on his appointment as the Minister of Youths and Sports, saying that it was commendable.

The association, in a statement jointly signed by its Chairman and Secretary, Niyi Alebiosu and Adewale Tijani, expressed hope of positive turn around in the ministry, considering Dare’s pedigree.

“We have no doubt that this appointment is well deserved, having exhibited high level of professionalism all through your career as a journalist and in other assignments you have undertaken,’’ the association remarked.

It expressed confidence that the new minister’s professional experience, integrity and high level of humility would, no doubt, add value to the Buhari-led administration.

“As stakeholders in the sports and journalism sectors, we are optimistic that your leadership will give the required commitment to the sector towards repositioning it for greater heights.

“While we are not mindful of the fact that the task ahead of you will be hectic, we wish you luck and success, and extend our sincere support to your administration in bringing reforms to the ministry and sports in general,’’ SWAN said.
