Nigeria: SSS Director Makes Case for Inter-Agency Competition

The director in charge of the Institute for Security Studies, ISS, a training institute for the State Security Service, SSS, Mr. Olalekun Adebayo Odugbemi has called for an inter-security agencies sporting competition, saying such competition was desirable to forester unity among the country's security agencies.

Odugbemi made the call, weekend, during a novelty match between the officers and men of the Service at the headquarters office and those at the ISS, where he stated that sporting activities were part of measures of keeping fit and alert.

Speaking with journalists at the end of the event which also featured the finals of a football match involving officers and personnel of the agency, during which the winning team smiled home with a gold Cup and prize money of N50,000.00 the director disclosed that part of the aim was to take the games to other states of the federation.

We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly, it was so much fun. We've not seen some of our friends for some time, it was a great time. You should expect that the personnel who put in a lot of work have to relax, relieve strain, relieve tension and that is why they came here.
