The President of African Association of Ultra Running, Chief Solomon Ogba, has commended the Governor of Ogun State, Mr. Dapo Abiodun, for his giant strides towards sports development in just a few months after getting into office.
The former president of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) was full of praise for the governor for accepting to host the first ever Africa Ultra Race Championship in Ogun State.
“The Ogun State government has been so supportive and has given us all the cooperation to ensure a successful hosting of the African Championship on December 7, 2019.
“Dapo Abiodun, showed us great understanding of his knowledge about sports development. This has spurred us on to strongly believe that, the Valuejet Remo 50km Ultra Race would in a very short time become one of the best in the world, especially as Ogun state is hosting the very first edition in the African continent.”
Ogba, who is currently a board member of the AFN, noted that, the success of the first edition of the JAC Motors Abeokuta 5km Road Race on November 2, 2019 was a great indicator that the December 7, 2019 Valuejet 50km Remo Ulta Race will be a huge success.
