Governor Sule and others applaud Wadada’s orphan initiative.

Nasarawa State Governor Abdullahi Sule and other dignitaries have praised Sen. Ahmed Wadada (SDP/Nasarawa West), the founder of Keffi Polo Ranch, for staging a tournament to benefit orphans.

Sule made the remarks during a chat with reporters on Sunday during the grand finale of the 11th edition of the Keffi Polo Ranch Tournament for orphans in Keffi Local Government Area, Nasarawa State.

The Flour Mills of Nigeria sponsored the five-day democracy tournament in favour of orphans, which was co-sponsored by Keystone Bank and backed by the Nasarawa State Government.

The governor, represented by his Deputy, Dr. Emmanuel Akabe, congratulated Wadada for his commitment to offering viable platforms for eliciting support for orphans and the less privileged in society, such as the polo competition.

“We thank him for his bravery and commitment to this project, and as you can see, it is a game that has drawn people from all over Nigeria to congregate here.”We’ve come from all over the country, from the north to the south to the centre, to see this event and support Wadada’s work with orphans.

“Because we believe in it, our administration will continue to support the tournament.” The Keffi Polo Club competition serves as a venue for fostering cooperation among Nigeria’s many groups.

“That is why, if I am unable to attend the event, my deputy will represent me.” We believe in it, and we believe in Nigeria’s unity.

“We are very proud of this initiative, and we are very proud of our son, the distinguished senator,” he said.

Sen. George Akume, Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), praised Wadada for not letting any difficulty deter him from hosting the competition to raise funds for orphans.

Wadada’s compassion and desire to better the lives of his people, particularly orphans and the less fortunate, were laudable, according to Akume, and should be copied by other well-meaning Nigerians.

The SGF informed Nigerians that President Bola Tinubu’s administration was devoted to ease their hardships and urged them to support it.

Sen. Barau Jibrin, Deputy Senate President, told reporters that, in addition to helping orphans, the competition would also promote and involve young Nigerians in the game of polo.

Barau described the competition as a commendable effort to help the needy while also promoting the game of polo.
In his remarks, Wadada stated that the event was devoted to orphans in order to raise awareness and support for their needs in order for them to live good lives.

“Every year, we hold two charity tournaments.” “This is in support of orphans, and that’s why it’s a democracy celebration in support of orphans,” he explained.

Wadada rejected the notion that polo was exclusive for the wealthy; anybody, regardless of social standing, could participate.

“The game of polo is not only for the wealthy; the wealthy own horses and support polo teams.”

“But playing it does not necessarily mean you have to be rich before you play it,” he explained.

The founder committed to continue doing everything it takes to bring people together in order to alleviate the poor’s suffering.
The “Democracy Tournament in Support of Orphans” began on Tuesday, June 20th.

Several celebrities attended the competition, including Rep. Benjamin Kalu, Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives; Alhaji Aminu Ado-Bayero, Emir of Kano; and Dr. Shehu Chindo-Yamusa III, Emir of Keffi.
