The Oyo State governor His Excellency Engr Seyi Makinde was among the eminent personalities that were in the stand for this year’s US Open finals in the United States.
The soft-spoken governor watched the Women’s final between Coco Gauf and Aryna Sabalenka in which Gauf triumphed.
He was also present for the men’s final where Novak Djokovic prevailed over Danil Medvedev to clinch his 24th Grand Slam title.
The governor praised both players for their hard work and determination and also used the same medium to urge his team to maintain their high-profile attitude to work.
” We watched 19-year-old Coco Gauff and 37-year-old Novak Djokovic make history at this year’s US Open Women and Men’s Championships.
Coco’s rise has been slow but steady, whilst Djokovic has remained tenacious.
They both represent hard work, focus and determination.
Their wins reminded us that with hard work and a clear focus, Nigeria can achieve its full potential as we compete on the world stage.
” For us in Oyo State, our administration will continue to put in the work required to ensure that this happens”, he said.
