Kogi State Government to Honour Olorunleke

by Duke Magazine

The Kogi State Government is set to shower accolades on goalkeeper Ojo Olorunleke and other indigenes who represented the state with distinction at the recently concluded 2023 Africa Cup of Nations. This announcement comes despite Olorunleke serving as the Super Eagles’ third-choice goalkeeper throughout the tournament.

Anyebe Monday, the state’s Commissioner for Youth and Sports Development, made this known to the public. Monday emphasised the importance of recognising Olorunleke’s contribution, stating, “It is vital for the government to celebrate the goalie, even if he didn’t see much playing time. His inclusion in the national team itself is a testament to his talent and dedication, and we want to acknowledge that.”

Monday went on to express the government’s overall satisfaction with the Super Eagles’ performance. “Nigeria, and Kogi State in particular, are incredibly proud of the team’s achievement in reaching the final,” he declared. “The present administration remains firmly committed to supporting and encouraging our sportsmen and women who bring honour to the state.”

This announcement signifies the Kogi State Government’s commitment to fostering a culture of sportsmanship and recognising the achievements of its citizens, regardless of their individual playing time. Olorunleke’s inclusion, despite being the third-choice goalkeeper, sends a powerful message of inclusivity and appreciation for dedication and hard work. The upcoming ceremony promises to be a significant event, not only for Olorunleke and the other honorees but also for the state’s aspiring sportspersons, who will be inspired by this recognition.
