The event was approved by the LSSC board on Monday, September 26th, following a presentation to the board. On October 3, 2017, a press conference will be held to spread the message to a larger audience.
BizzyBody NG Founder/CEO and Chairman of the AmuwoGames 2017 Committee Oluwaseun Ayeni revealed that AmuwoGames was conceived a couple of months ago, immediately after Local Government elections in Lagos state concluded, leaving a lot of energy buzzing around town.
“AmuwoGames was conceived as a tool to help youths dissipate their energy in activities that can be productive and developmental, and it will also be used to discover the best talent all over Nigeria and to win medals for the nation at upcoming International Games,” he said. The AmuwoGames concept hopes to be replicated in all cities across the country in the near future.
