Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, the National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has sympathised with the management and players of the Kwara United Football team which recently had an auto accident on its way from a football engagement in Lagos.
The team which was returning from the ‘Super 4’ tournament of the Nigerian National League had the accident on the Ibadan-Oyo expressway when its coaster bus collided with a stationary truck. Several officials and players of the team were injured as a result of the accident.
Mallam Abdullahi, a former Minister of Sports, said he was shocked by the news of the accident but consoled by the fact that no life was lost in it.
“As sad as it is that the team was involved in that unfortunate incident, I am delighted that no one died as a result of it; nonetheless, I condole with the entire team and wish the casualties speedy recovery,” he said.
Abdullahi also assured that he will work with other sports stakeholders in Kwara to ensure that the accident does not affect the team adversely.
“I have watched the team play and can say confidently that they have depth and quality. I will work with other stakeholders to support the team to ensure that the accident does not affect the team’s ability to compete effectively in the premier league,” Abdullahi said.
