The Federal Government has donated sports equipment to over 50 public primary schools in Ogun State.

The equipment were presented to the state government by  the National Lottery Trust Fund on Tuesday at the MKO  Stadium, Abeokuta.

They   included handball, basketball, football, volleyball, table tennis, athletics, badminton and taekwando equipment.

The  chief executive  of the  NLTF, Ahmed Gumel,  who handed over the equipment to the Deputy Governor of the state,  Mrs.  Yetunde Onanuga, who represented Governor Ibikunke Amosun,   said they were purchased from funds realised from  the national lottery.

He said Section 40(a) of the National Lottery Act 2005 empowers  the body to use  proceeds from all national lottery operations for  good  projects in  the country.

Gumel said President Muhammadu Buhari was committed to the development of grassroots sports in the country, hence the Federal Government decided to equip public primary schools  with sports equipment

Amosun commended the Federal Government for the equipment, saying the items would help the state to discover more talents in the state.
