Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, has commended boxing superstar, Anthony Joshua, for successfully defending his IBF heavyweight title on Saturday.
British-born Joshua, whose father is a native of Sagamu in Ogun State, defeated Carlos Takam in the 10th round of their bout at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, UK.
Governor Amosun, in a statement by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Dayo Adeneye, expressed his delight with Joshua’s victory.
His words, “His string of successes is simply a manifestation of the gene of a true son of Ogun State, who are born to be victorious and do exploits in all fields of human endeavor.
“It also demonstrates the ‘Ogun Standard’, which is the mantra of the new Ogun State, noted for excellence.”
He also said the development could also be seen from the standpoint of the doggedness and determination of an average Nigerian man.
While the Governor wishes the international boxer luck in his future encounters, he urged Nigerian youths to unearth their untapped skills.
