Special Adviser to Governor Gboyega Oyetola on Youth and Sports, Aremo Gboyega Adelabu has lauded the sterling performance put up by players of Osun United which gave them the deserved victory over Ekiti United in the week 6 fixture played on Saturday in Ilorin.
Aremo Adelabu, who was with the players and technical crew in Ilorin throughout their entire stay described the match as very tough and expressed happiness with the victory.
“It’s a tough match I have ever watched since the beginning of the league this season as both sides played good football. Eventually, we overcame the terrific onslaught of Ekiti United who came back stronger in the second half.
“I congratulate the entire players and the Coaching crew for a job well done and I want to advise them that there are rooms for improvement. We know we are playing on a neutral venue which made it difficult to adapt quickly but the coach should work more on the areas where there are lapses.
Speaking earlier in the morning with the players in their hotel, the Special Adviser reminded players of Governor Gboyega Oyetola’s efforts at sustaining Osun United and Osun Babes in spite of dwindling revenue. He enjoined players to be more patient as plans are underway to improve their welfare packages.
“We need to thank Mr. Governor whose desire is to add value to the system on ground by taking sports to higher level. Even with the dwindling revenue, the government continues to finance the two teams and with this, you need to put in more efforts to justify the huge investment of government on the team.
“I want to assure you that we are working assiduously to improve on what we met on ground. Very soon, your welfare packages will be reviewed and you begin to enjoy further,” assured the Osogbo-born grassroot politician.
The Governor’s aide further promised to continue to support Osun United and Osun Babes by striving hard to ensure that both teams finish on a high note in their respective league this year.
