DELTA State Governor, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa has described sports as veritable tool to keep the youths away societal ills.
The Governor was speaking during the finals of the 9th edition of annual Utuama Peace Cup sponsored by the former Deputy Governor of Delta State, Prof. Amos Utuama (SAN) at Otu-Jeremi, Ughelli South local government area said sports, especially, competitions such as this, is a way of engaging our youths positively and a way of discovering our stars.
He commended Prof. Utuama for consistently organising the tournament, saying, Prof. Utuama is creating a lot of activities to engage the youths positively.
At the occasion, Governor Okowa bagged the “Utuama Peace Cup Ambassador” award which Prof. Utuama said was based on the governor’s long term interest in the tournament.
