Daily Trust - - SPORT - By Bashir Li­man, Jos

The Plateau state govern­ment has con­cluded prepa­ra­tions to re­sus­ci­tate long aban­doned in­ter lo­cal govern­ment foot­ball com­pe­ti­tion in the state.

The state Com­mis­sioner for Youths and Sports De­vel­op­ment, Mr. Dan­ladi Mann dis­closed this in an in­ter­view with Daily Trust in Jos.

Mann ex­plained that the state took the de­ci­sion to re­vive the com­pe­ti­tion con­sid­er­ing its sig­nif­i­cance to pol­i­tics, econ­omy and the state’s team­ing youths that would want to take to foot­ball as their ca­reer.

He said his min­istry is ready to en­sure the pro­mo­tion and de­vel­op­ment of sports, in­clud­ing foot­ball at the state and lo­cal govern­ment lev­els.

He there­fore called on youths in the state to fully par­tic­i­pate in the com­ing com­pe­ti­tion to launch their foot­ball ca­reer to great­ness.
