Team Bayelsa won the maiden edition of the National Para Games on Friday in Abuja, bringing home a total of 93 medals.

According to reports,  Bayelsa won 31 gold, 30 silver, and 32 bronze medals during the Games, which were held at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium.

During the Games’ closing ceremony, Ismail Abubakar, Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, who represented Minister Sunday Dare, praised the states that participated.

He thanked everyone for their cooperation during the course of the seven-day event.

“I thank Almighty God for the huge success recorded in the games and I also wish to express my profound gratitude to all the states which participated in this first edition.

“I also thank all the team officials and athletes, as well as sponsors for all their participation,” Abubakar said.

Peter Nelson, Chairman of the Games’ Local Organising Committee (LOC), while speaking also, said the next edition of the competition would be more interesting than the first edition.

“Para athletes have been making the nation proud at international events and it is enough for the Federal Government to show through this event that the country has good intentions for them.

“This is why we can promise that the second edition of the National Para Games will be more interesting,” he said.
