Para-Athletes Stage Protest in Ilorin, Lock Out Stadium Workers.

Para-Athletes Stage Protest in Ilorin, Lock Out Stadium Workers.

Kwara Special athletes yesterday in Ilorin protested alleged neglect of their welfare by the State Sports Commission.

The athletes barricaded the stadium entrances to get the government’s attention regarding their needs. They accused the commission’s chairman of depriving them of their rights. The protest lasted over five hours and affected stadium workers, students, and other athletes trying to access the facility. Speaking during the protest, one of the representatives of the athletes, Felix Oyadiran, appealed to the state government to do something about their plight.

According to him, “Most athletes have left the state because of the policies of Bola Magaji administration which is frustrating everybody. Our welfare is not being taken care of saying our award or reward is nothing but a privilege,” he said.
