FOR his immense contribution to sports, as well as to the ideals of Olympics value, Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola will Tuesday be honoured by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

According to the Secretary General, Nigeria Olympic Committee (NOC), Tunde Popoola, the choice of the governor was based on his enormous contribution to sports development in the country.

“The IOC trophy is presented to an outstanding individual, who has contributed immensely to sports in a particular country. In Nigeria, Governor Fashola has been chosen as the recipient of the trophy, which also marked the 100 years of Modern Olympics. So the trophy will be presented by the representative of IOC in Nigeria, Habu Gumel alongside the President of NOC, Sani Ndanusa,” Popoola said.
