IN CONCLUSION MAY I APPEAL TO THE SUPREME COUNCIL TO LET THE YOUTH OF AFRICA MEET ONE ANOTHER MORE FREQUENTLY IN THE ARENA OF SPORTS. LET THEM BE TAUGHT THE GREAT LESSONS OF FAIR PLAY, TOLERANCE AND UNITY THROUGH HEALTHY SPORTING COMPETITIONS SINCE SPORTS OFFER THE BEST HOPE FOR AFRICA AND THE WORLD IN FOSTERING UNITY AND FRIENDSHIP AMONGST PEOPLE. I ASSURE YOU OF MY COUNTRY'S CONTINUED SUPPORT OF YOUR COUNCIL. ONCE AGAIN, I WELCOME YOU ALL TO NIGERIA. I WISH YOU AN ENJOYABLE STAY AND HOPE THAT YOU WILL TAKE WITH YOU PLEASANT MEMORIES OF YOUR VISIT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH."
