As the 7th Kwara Sports Festival approaches, the Main Organising Committee, under the Chairpersonship of the Commissioner for Sports and Youth Development, Hon. Joana Nnazua Kolo, paid courtesy visits to security personnel and  media houses in the State to guarantee the participating athletes and officials adequate safety and publicity.

The tour to build arrangements on security of the participants and skyrocket the pace of publicity on the event was made to the Nigeria Police Headquarters, Ilorin, Federal Road Safety Corps, Kwara State Command, Ilorin, and media houses.

Recollect that the Committee is simultaneously going round all the Local Government Areas in the State to replicate the ceremony of unity exemplified by His Excellency,  Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, the Committee also deploys the replication of the "torch-of-unity" rite round the local areas to assure the parents of adequate security arrangements by the Kwara State Government in respect of the forthcoming festival.

The outing by the Committee Members was partly to vindicate the assurance of the Committee on safety before, during and after the big event.

Receiving the Committee in his office, the Kwara State Commissioner of Police, C.P. Kayode Egbetokun, showed his delight for the project, which he described as a channel to manage restiveness on the part of the youths in the State.
Egbetokun confirmed the significant place of sports among police officers, arguing that the decision by the police to set aside one or two hours in a week for sports is to the effect of the Nigeria Police's recognition of the importance of sports.

He assured that the mission of the Committee to his office is already accomplished, as security build up is already on track in preparation for the sports festival.

In his response, the Corps Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps, Kwara Command, C.C. Jonathan A. Owoade, volunteered to partner with the Kwara State Government and the Committee in bringing to fruition the forthcoming festival.

He appealed to the Committee to let his Command get the proper details of involvement in the festival, so that he will accordingly disseminate the information to the component units.
He noted that with the readiness and  commitment of the Committee and the people of the State to complement the efforts of the State Government, Kwara will one day reach the promised land, hoping that the State will continue producing sports stars with international recognition and economic arsenal.

Mr. Owoade added that the Government of Mallam AbdulRazaq has been relating well with the Command before this time, thanking the State Government for always caring for the FRSC Command.
