Mr Austin Egbe, owner of a hotel in Benin City, said: “With the visit of the FIFA team, players in the hospitality sector are ready to take full advantage as the state prepares to host the 2020 Under-20 Women’s World Cup event. The state government has done well by investing in sports development with the rennovation of the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium into a world-class sports centre.”He said the state government’s investment in road infrastructure has boosted the profile of operators in the hospitality business, noting, “The state government’s complete turnaround of sporting facilities at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium is heartwarming. Those of us in the hospitality business, especially those of us who are owners of hotels, are also upgrading our facilities to be of a world-class standard to host visitors from around the world for the soccer event.”Asemota Osaretin, a taxi operator with one of the ride-hailing services in the state, said, “The state government’s unprecedented reconstruction of the roads in Benin City has also shown that Edo State is ready for business and we are happy with the development.

It is scenic, picturesque, functional, strong and very promising.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

first_imgMalachi Richardson and Michael Gbinije were both in attendance at the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago on Thursday, but only Gbinije participated in game action. Richardson opted not to play in the 5-on-5 portion of the event due to a back injury, he told ESPN’s Andy Katz on the broadcast.In the scrimmage, Gbinije played for the blue team, one of four teams and one that also had Iowa State’s Georges Niang, Gonzaga’s Kyle Wiltjer and Wisconsin’s Nigel Hayes on the roster.Gbinije played 27 minutes and shot 4-of-8 from the field, including a 2-for-4 mark from beyond the arc. He also hit three of his four foul shots to finish with 13 points. The former Syracuse point guard, who played both the point and 2-guard in the scrimmage, also chipped in three rebounds, three steals and two assists.He is projected to be taken in the second round by a handful of mock drafts, and Thursday’s performance would likely boost his stock, if anything.Richardson, who has yet to sign with an agent, also told Katz that he’s 50-50 on the decision to stay in the draft or return to school and he wants to make sure he makes the right decision for both him and his family.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text In the measurable department, Richardson’s 10.56-second lane-agility drill ranked fourth of the 34 players who had completed the drill on Thursday. Gbinije slotted in 12th with a time of 11 seconds.Gbinije’s three-quarter sprint time of 3.12 seconds was tops in the group of 35, while Richardson recorded a time of 3.33 seconds, which ranked 24th. In the standing vertical leap, Gbinije and Richardson ranked ninth and 10th respectively out of a group of 34 with Gbinije posting a mark of 33.5 inches and Richardson jumping 33 inches.The combine goes until Sunday, and underclassmen without an agent like Richardson will have until May 25 to decide whether they will return to school or keep their name in the draft.
