Emir of Ilorin cup final to witness distribution of palliatives to vulnerables – Official


Ilorin, Kwara.

The Chairman of the Main Organizuing Committee (MOC) of the ongoing Emir of Ilorin football Championship, Alhaji AbdulRazaq Wopa, has confirmed that the final of the tourney will witness distribution of palliatives to vulnerable persons.

He disclosed this in Ilorin on Saturday while speaking with newsmen.

Wopa explained that the MOC is staging the competition differently because of the uniqueness of the Emir, whom the championship is meant to celebrate his 28th year coronation.

“We are not using the competition to make money but to make positive impact, that is why we will be using the grand finale to also distribute palliatives to the vulnerable and fans to further cushion the effects of fuel subsidy removal,” he said.

The MOC chairman commended all the 32 participating teams for complying with the rules and regulations of the organisers since the commencement of the tourney, asking them to sustain the spirit of the sportsmanship.

While appreciating those who contributed to the competition, he expressed optimism to receive more support from other stakeholders, particularly from Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.

The Emir of Ilorin Cup final is scheduled for Nov. 11, at the main bowl of the Kwara Stadium complex, Ilorin.
