Commonwealth: Uduaghan vows to reward Delta athletes


Emmanuel Uduaghan, Delta State Governor, has promised to reward athletes who bring honour to Delta State at the ongoing Commonwealth Games.

He disclosed this on his visit to the on-going Commonwealth Games in Scotland.

“In Delta, we appreciate and reward all our athletes who bring honour to the state. You can see the marvelous job they are doing for Nigeria and Delta. It is in our character to welcome them home as heroes and heroines,” said the governor.

He added that, “The important thing is that they are serving Nigeria and I’m happy that they are from my state and all efforts in building these facilities are not in vain.”

Thereafter, Efe Ambrose who plies his trade with Celtic FC of Scotland presented the Governor with a Celtic jersey.

Uduaghan has set the pace with world class facilities in Delta State, the latest is the World Class Gym he built for weightlifting and almost all the weightlifting athletes who lifted Nigeria with gold medals happen to come from Delta.
