The Rojenny Tourist and Games Village Oba, congratulate the Executive Governor of Anambra state Chief Willie Obiano, Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu, Mni, Chairman, Nigeria Police Sports Committee, AIG, Usman Alkali, Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) Mua’zu Zubairu Mni, all other AIGs, The Anambra State Commissioner of Police CP John Abang fdc, other commissioners of Police, Divisional Police Officers, the Police Games local organizing committee and all police athletes who participated at the just concluded Anambra 2020 Nigeria Police Games. From all accounts across the different venues, the games commenced and ended in the intended spirit, which is “Promoting Community Safety Through Sports.”
The influx of over 3000 police athletes into the state for the purpose of the games has further strengthened the existing good relationship between Ndi Anambra and the Police Force as there were no cases of violence or disagreements between the people and the police. The Police Games, being the first National Sports event to be held in Anambra Sate and the first Police Games to be held in the Southeast is not just historic but critically important in the history of Anambra state. The decision of the Nigeria Police Force to make Anambra State their choice for the games, I believe, was informed by the level of security infrastructures present in the state. This goes to add to the already established fact that the security structure in the state is exceptional.
It is on that note that I highly commend the Government of Anambra Sate under the able leadership of His Excellency Chief Willie M. Obiano, for boosting sports development via creating an enabling environment and providing all necessary supports towards achieving a hitch free Anambra 2020 Police Games. I describe the Police Games as an agent of luminance which has stimulated the sight of the entire country and that of the international communities, making the various sports infrastructure in the state visible to them and motivating them to put them into good use by investing in sports in the state. No doubts, the 2020 Police Games will attract more National and International sports investment in Anambra State. It is an indication that we are proceeding progressively as a state. To God be the glory!
To the athletes who participated in athletics, I wish to say that I am proud of all your accomplishments at Rojenny Games Village Oba. The passion, drive and determination of the athletes were simply amazing. The police athletes made their different zones proud, the likes of Oluchi Ofoma from the Force Headquarters who won two gold medals in 800mtrs and 400mtrs (Women) respectively. I offer my warmest congratulations to all the medalists for the great feat they have attained participating in the athletic competitions and I wish everyone of the athletes all the very best for every success in the future.
Anambra 2020 12th biennial Police Games provided a special occasion for people from the different parts of the country to unite in so many ways and to achieve truly wonderful things. One of the best parts is the opportunity to cheer our zonal athletes from the stands to victory and for our communities to join together in seeing our country thrive. In the words of Gov. Willie Obiano, “when the story of the new Anambra State is told, the Nigeria Police Force will occupy an enviable position as incredible partners of the state.”
God bless the Nigeria Police Force
God bless Anambra State
To God be the Glory!
