Kwara FA chairman, Idris Abdullahi Musa has assured injured Kwara United player Abdulsalam Abdulsalam of maximum support to ensure his quick return to action.
Abdulsalam fractured his leg after colliding with Wikki Tourists player Hassan Abubakar barely two minutes into their Matchday 24 encounter held at the Kwara State Sports Complex in Ilorin on Sunday.
He was urgently attended to by the medics before taken him to General Hospital Ilorin by a well-equipped ambulance provided by the state FA.
The Kwara FA boss who visited Abdulsalam maintained that provision of adequate facilities has always been on the ground at football games at the state stadium and restated the association’s commitments in helping the player in recovering from the career-threatening injury he sustained.
“This is just a visit with some of my board members and we promised to work hand in hand with Kwara United to see how he recovers quickly. The board will meet to deliberate on what to do and anything we decided will be done 100 percent.
“The directive by the football federation is to remind us of the FIFA law that is on the ground. If you look at our Stadium very well, we have never joked with the issue of security and medicals.
“Right from start ABS, Kwara United and most of these teams, we make sure that there is a doctor and nurse on ground.
We have always kept an ambulance on standby and even have another vehicle on standby just in case. There are also provisions for hand oxygen which can keep somebody alive for at least an hour.
“The FA checks the medical box of home teams and where we find out that there are certain things that they do not have, we make it compulsory for them to do that.
“So we have been doing all these because we don’t want to take any risk. I know the implications of all these things so I never joke with them,” Thuraya as he is fondly called told SportingLife.
