The man­age­ment of kwara State Polytech­nic has pledged sup­port for the first JAMB foot­ball com­pe­ti­tion among Ter­tiary In­sti­tu­tions in Nige­ria.

The Rec­tor, Alh Ma­sud Elelu made this known dur­ing a cour­tesy call by the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee of the com­pe­ti­tion to the polytech­nic.

He said the polytech­nic which is ready to host 2018 NIPOGA edi­tion be­tween 20th-27th July, will equally need the as­sis­tance of the com­mit­tee.

He added that the polytech­nic has modern fa­cil­i­ties that could be used for in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tions and the com­mit­tee should there­fore avail it­self of their Games Vil­lage.

Elelu in­formed the com­mit­tee that LOC and sub- com­mit­tees have been set up to smoothen the plan­ning ac­tiv­i­ties in order to de­liver a be­fit­ting tour­na­ment.

He added that the polytech­nic has in­volved two con­sul­tants; John Fashanu and Mary Onyali to take charge of Mar­ket­ing, Spon­sor­ship and ad­ver­tis­ing.

Ear­lier, the chair­man of the com­mit­tee Alh Ab­du­la­teef Ad­edeji said the com­pe­ti­tion is part of the so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity of JAMB in catch­ing the young tal­ents in ter­tiary in­sti­tu­tions in the game of Foot­ball.

He ex­plained that the par­tic­i­pants must have JAMB reg­is­tra­tion num­ber to be el­i­gi­ble to par­tic­i­pate.

The com­mit­tee con­grat­u­lated the polytech­nic for win­ning the host­ing right of 2018 NIPOGA.
