While a few of them are no more, these ones I saw today showed great spirit and have not lost their sportsmanship in spite of the challenges of old age.

I have made strong commitments to improving their welfare by ensuring that they are signed up to our comprehensive health insurance program. Henceforth, they shall be able to access quality healthcare at zero cost at our State teaching hospital and affiliate health institutions.

I have also approved an increase in the monthly stipend of the 73 -man membership of the Ex-Rangers international group from 15,000 Naira to 100,000 Naira. This will help them meet other basic economic and social needs, and it is our own way of expressing deep appreciation to these legends who expended much of their active years in the service of country.
