According to the Media Head, Rasheed Mahe says the 41st edition of the Federation of Public Service Games (FEPSGA-Jos 2022) was declared open on 16th December 2022 , with a call on participants to ensure free and fair competition and also be good ambassadors of their respective organizations.
The Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan, gave the charge while speaking at the Rwang Pam Township Stadium, Jos Plateau State.
Yemi Esan, who stressed the importance of games for ensuring mental alertness, building relationships, and engendering competition amongst participants, urged them to respect the rules of the game.
Represented by Mrs. Oguntade, a deputy director in her office, the HOS used the forum to appreciate the support and cooperation of the plateau state government towards hosting the fiesta at very short notice.
Earlier, the National President of FEPSGA, Comrade Aloku Amaebi, applauded the enthusiasm of contingents despite the sudden change of venue.
Aloku Amaebi therefore enjoined them to ensure rancor-free competition and build relationships in the spirit of sportsmanship.
Other speakers at the opening ceremony include, among others, the representative of Plateau State Governor Simon Bako Lalong.
