The Kwara Government has re-named the Ilorin Golf Club as Mohammed Lawal International Golf Club.
The late Lawal governed the state between 1999 and 2003.
The state government also named the Ola-Olu-CBN Quarters road after the late football star, Rasheed Yekini.
The state Commissioner for Sports, Mr Kayode Towoju, announced this in Ilorin on Wednesday while briefing newsmen on the outcome of the State Executive Council meeting.
He said the state government took the decision to give post-humous award to the two indigenes of the state following their contributions to sports development.
Towoju explained that the late former governor was considered for the award because of his international stature with regards to golf.
The commissioner, who poured encomiums on the two indigenes, stressed the need to honour those who contributed to the development of the state.
Specifically, he said the image of Yekini had rubbed positively on the state, adding that his death was a great loss to Kwara and Nigeria as a whole.
It would be recalled that Yekini died on May 4 and was buried the next day in his home town in Ira, Oyun Local Government.
