Speaking with Complete Sports, Students Representative Council (SRC) president, Adedapo Adesanya, thanked the company for supporting the initiative and for fulfilling all its promises towards the success of the sport day.
“BetWinner has been a very interesting sponsor. From when we started talking to them, they were very co-operative, they can be trusted. They told us what they are going to give us and they did everything. They are here in the capacity to support us, they are helpful and for that, we are grateful. I urge people to patronize Bet Winner because this is a brand they can trust”, he stated.
He challenged other corporate bodies to emulate Bet Winner and support sport initiatives, stating that it will go a long way in discouraging the youths from crime.
