According to Sudani, the tournament under the theme “get together” has brought Youths from six payams of the county to Ezo Freedom Square and the winning team will take a trophy.
Mr. Sudani said the tournament aimed to bring together all the youth across Ezo County to unite and interrelate with one another.

The Commissioner reflects on the relative security of Ezo County, saying the people are going on with their normal duties.

Commissioner Sudani called on the people to continue maintaining peace.
Meanwhile, Madam Anita, one of the organizers of the foot tournament said the initiative aimed to unite the youth and to promote peace among sons as well as daughters of greater EZO County.
