Mr Seun Fakorede, The Honourable Commissioner for youth and sports Oyo State entrusted with overseeing the affairs of youths and sports in the state has reportedly been the threat to the motivation and welfare of the athletes of the state.
Honourable Commisioner is reported to have ordered the removal of 22 contract athletes from the payroll of Oyo State Sports Council, he replaced it with names of friends and families who have been receiving the sum of #30,000 and #40,000 (on a monthly basis as the case may be), since four months leaving the state athletes aggrieved and discontented with how they are being treated hence, spreading bad news about the government not treating them well.
This revelation came up when a group of athletes go around seeking justice on how their names have been unjustly removed from the payroll of the state Sport council and those that are lucky to be there pays 70% of their own allowance to the coaches as bribes to remain active in the system. These set of reporters declare that they don’t care what happens next but they really have to sorosoke.
The situation of Oyo state athletes is really pitiable has there are no kits, no coordination and their entitlements are being used by the management to run personal affairs.
This is what happens when the head is greedy, there would be no one to check the excesses of the surbodinate.
It is pitiable!
