The former APC governorship aspirant noted that the new Minister of Youths and Sports could, with his experience, knowledge and competence serve meritoriously in any other Ministry,.
“Earning the portfolio of Youth and Sports at this moment when the government intends to focus more on youths was a confirmation of the trust the President has in him. It was very heartwarming that the minister had on assumption of office promised to unlock the potentials of youths in the various parts of the country beyond sports and that he was not going to concentrate all efforts on soccer at the expense of other games capable of expanding our frontiers in sports.” he said.
Karim added, “I am highly impressed with his smooth take off as the minister of Youth and Sports. He has equally exhibited a good grasp of administration and leadership, the two vital qualities needed to succeed as a minister. I am very hopeful that he would bring about the much turn around we require in the development of youth and sports generally in our country. Certainly, he would make the President and Nigeria proud.”
Congratulating Sunday Dare on an excellent take off, Karim felicitated with the leadership and members of the All Progressives Congress in Oyo State and all the people of the pacesetter state for having an excellent representative in the national cabinet.No tags for this post.
