After the event, Lookmon Owolabi, the organizer of the MGI Scrabble Premier League, thanked everyone who made this possible.
âFirst of all, I have to thank God, because none of this would have been possible without God.
âI would also like to thank everyone who has supported this brand. The players, the sponsors, and I want to say that this is sponsored by Scrabble players. I funded the event, but with the support of the Scrabble players, we did it successfully. COVID came, but thank God we are alive and we were able to defeat COVID, we picked up in Abuja and this is the final of the event. “
Owolabi called on sponsors to join the MGI Scrabble Premier League to take it to greater heights.
He added: âThat is actually expected. The structure of the league is that the team is traveling across the country, actually in four locations, Abuja, Lagos, Port Harcourt, and this is where we are pulling the curtain on the league.
âSo this is an event that every player looks forward to and participates in, and the standard of the event is top notch.
âWe just hope to keep up the Temple, the Standard, and everything that MGI brings to Scrabble. And I would like to take this opportunity to reach out to sponsors and companies so that we can get this game to where it should be. “
And about how they were able to become champions in this year’s edition, Eta Karo, captain of Team Brainiacs said: âI am very happy, very happy, it was not an easy experience. Last year we missed the championship, it was really painful so we went back to the drawing board and came up with a strong formula to coordinate our team with to prepare for this year’s edition. “
