The Ogun Commissioner for Youth and Sport, Mr Afolabi Afuape, has advocated for the engagement of Albinos in sporting activities in the country.
Afuape made the call at the first Ogun National Albinism Day with the theme: “Fighting Scourge of Skin Cancer among Albinos in the State.”
According to him, being an albino does not stop them from participating in any sporting activ
ities of their choice.
He said his ministry was interested in the success of the people irrespective of colour differences and urged any albino who has interest in any sporting activities to visit the ministry for enrolment.
Afuape called on the Federal Government and other major stakeholders in sporting industry to encourage albinos to participate in sporting activities.
