Ogun Gov, Dapo Abiodun Gifts World Champion, Tobi Amosun N5m

On Tuesday, the Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, announced a cash reward of N5 million and a house to the World, Commonwealth and African 100 metres hurdles, Oluwatobi Amusan.

The governor also named her the Ogun State Sports Ambassador.

Abiodun, in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, hosted Amusan at his Oke Mosan Office, Abeokuta, the state capital.

The governor on April 26, 2021, adopted the star athlete, whose exploits were made known to the governor by the Minister of Youths and Sports, Sunday Dare.

Abiodun described  Amusan as a role model to the girl-child and a practical example of a truism that what a man can do, a woman can even do better.

“So, you will be our Sports Ambassador; I am happy that you said you are not from any other state. You are from Ogun and not from Lagos and you want to come back home. We also want to ensure that you come back home.

“We want to assure you that as you come back home, you have a home here in the state. So, in view of that, we will also be presenting to you a home in Ijebu-Ode.

“On top of that, we will be giving you a small token, we will be donating to you a sum of five million naira,” he said.

Abiodun noted that his administration is on course to give the Ijebu-Ode Stadium the necessary facelift.

He added that the call by the star athlete to use the stadium to train whenever she is in the country will further prompt his administration to fast-track the rehabilitation of the stadium.
