Sagamu Local Government Area council of Ogun State has named a street after Nigeria-British boxer, Anthony Joshua.
Council Chairman, Gbenga Banjo, announced that the Cinema Road in the council has now become “Anthony Joshua Way”.
Banjo, who spoke at the family house of Anthony Joshua along the Anthony Joshua Way in Sagamu on Tuesday, said the gesture was to appreciate the boxing legend for making Sagamu and Remoland great.
Joshua, a two-time unified heavyweight champion, earlier this month retained his world title belts with a ninth-round triumph over Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev.
Remo Growth and Development Foundation congratulated Sagamu Local Government for renaming the popular Cinema Road after Joshua.
Chief Operating Officer, Yemisi Oluwole, in a statement on Wednesda, described Joshua as a Remo International Ambassador.
While thanking leaders and stakeholders in the state, she called on the youths of Remoland to imitate Joshua by being the best in their careers.
The statement read, “A call is made to other sons and daughters of Remoland, most especially the youths of Remoland to emulate the virtues of Anthony Joshua by being the best in their chosen careers.
“And also to always be law-abiding citizens and stay away from any acts that can lead to social unrest.”
