A Community Leader and retired Civil Servant, Chief FAD Daramola has lauded the efforts of Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi on Sports Development.
Speaking in Ado-Ekiti at a get-together organised in honour of four retired staff of the State Sports Council, Chief Daramola said the
sports sector has witnessed a tremendous improvement since the inception of the present administration.
He noted that the resolve of the Governor to make sports development one of the focal points of his administration has impacted positively on the performances of the State’s athletes in both local and International sports competitions.
Chief Daramola who retired in 1985, noted that the Oluyemi Kayode Stadium has been upgraded to a world-class stadium comparable to many stadia he had visited around the world. He enjoined sports administrators in the state to properly maintain the facilities in order to justify government’s huge spending and ensure durability of the equipment.

avoid activities that may negatively affect their health.

their civil service career, noting that it was a privilege to successfully work for 35 years and retires honourably.
He extolled their contributions to the development of the establishment and wished them a rewarding retirement life.
The retirees are Mr. Abiodun Arogundade, Mr. Joseph Adeyeye, Mr. Akin Akinyemi and Mr. Elijah Oke who were later presented with parting gifts by the management of the Sports Council.
Responding on behalf of his colleagues, the retired Director, Organising, Mr. Joseph Adeyeye expressed appreciation to the Board and Management of the Sports Council for honouring them and promised to use the experience they have gained over the years to promote sports activities in their respective communities.
