Dapo Abiodun, Governor of Ogun, has gifted an apartment and a sum of N5 million to Tobi Amusan, the world record holder in women’s 100m hurdles.
Amusan, who is the current Diamond League (DL) women’s 100m champion, was also appointed youth ambassador of the state.
The governor announced the rewards on his Twitter handle following the visitation of the athlete to his Oke-Mosan office in Abeokuta, the state capital, on Tuesday October 4th, 2022.
“My adopted daughter and world-record holding athlete, Tobi Amusan, paid me a courtesy visit in Oke-Mosan this morning,” the tweet reads.
“I announced her appointment as Youth Ambassador in Ogun State and a donation of a house, as well as five million Naira in recognition of her world records and other stellar achievements.
“We had adopted the Ogun State daughter for career support earlier this year, as Ms Amusan displayed the result-driven spirit of resilience, hardwork and determination that the State is known for.”
The reward comes a few weeks after she was conferred with the Order of the Niger (OON) honour by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Amusan had an illustrious 2022 season where she became the first Nigerian to become a world champion in athletics and stormed to a world record en route.
The 25-year-old then went on to claim the gold medal in the women’s 100m hurdles at the 2022 Commonwealth Games, setting another record.
The Nigerian’s season wrapped up with the retention of her DL crown in Zurich last month.
