Yenogoa - Bayelsa State Governor Henry Seriake Dickson
has encouraged members of the Nigerian Wrestling team who will compete at the
upcoming Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland to bring back the medals.
Dickson made the call when a delegation of the Nigeria
Wrestling Federation led by its president, Daniel Igali paid him a courtesy
visit at the Bayelsa House in Abuja.
The Bayelsa state Governor, who expressed high hopes on the
team's ability to make the Country proud at the games, noted with delight, the
domineering role of Bayelsa, whose wrestlers have always brought honour to the
country at major international events.
While charging them to be dedicated, patriotic and
disciplined at the games, Governor Dickson reminded the wrestlers of the deep
rooted love and interest Bayelsans, including himself, who is a one time
champion has for the sport and remains an avid fan.
Dickson also encouraged the team to highlight the interest
the state and its people has for the sport.
He added that government is making arrangements
to send a high powered delegation, which he would personally lead to support
the Nigerian Wrestling Team at the games.
