Below are the excerpts from Tribune Online newspaper.

The commissioner, who said that the partnership of the state government and the JAMB was borne out of the need to sustain and build on advantage already achieved in youth games, commended the examination body for approving sum of N25 million for sponsorship of the yearly event.

He also lauded the management of JAMB for believing that the nation could stem the tide of moral and social decadence among youth through sports.

The commissioner for Sports also appealed to other well to do individuals and corporate organizations to emulate JAMB by sponsoring completions in other games as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
