The Kogi State Government has given full marks to Nestle Milo for their consistency in the sponsorship of the Milo Secondary Schools Basketball Championship which has been on for the past 16 years.
Kogi State Commissioner for Youth and Sports Hon. Attah Sule Ikani stated this when some members of the Organising Committee of the Confluence Conference of the Milo Basketball Championship went on a thank you visit to his office in Lokoja.
Ikani noted that Nestle Milo has used the championship to develop Nigerian youths from grassroots by giving them the platform to showcase their basketball skills.
He revealed that sports development should not be left alone in the hands of government, but the support of corporate organizations are also needed.
Responding, the Category Experiential Manager, Bola Awudu, reiterated Nestle’s commitment towards grassroots sports development and expressed delight with the excellent sporting facilities provided by the Kogi State Government to host players from 10 states in the Confluence Conference championship.
