The candle light procession will be held in honour of the pioneer chairman of the state’s Sports Commission and Special Adviser on Sports to the governor, whose tenure as the executive chairman of the LSSC witnessed pleasant development in sports.
The parade, which is expected to be led by Tinubu’s successor, Dr. Kweku Tandoh, will also have in attendance the Director General of the Sports Commission, Mr. Babatunde Bank-Anthony, among other top management staff of the commission, friends and well wishers.
Attendees at the candle light procession are enjoined to wear black/dark outfit.
