According to Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra state while declaring the games closed urged the athletes to project the state in positive light having enjoyed the hospitality and peace of residents of the state.
“When I reflect on what has happened here since we gathered here only last Saturday, I begin to realise that so much has happened in just one week.
Again, when I reflect on what has happened, I begin to realise that we can write a new sporting chapter of history in one week and that we can also write a new book of greatness in one week.
History and greatness is what this games has done and we have put out an amazing narrative of excellence in one week.
Hosting the 12th edition of the biennial police games has brought out the best in us; nothing else unites a people like sports and nothing renews national unity and heals the cracks between people like sports.
I have no doubt that many of the participants of this games may never have visited Anambra if not for ‘Anambra 2020’.”
