Sports is a very powerful tool for youth engagement – Soname
A sports Administrator, Mr Kunle Soname has advised Ogun State Government to use the powerful tool of sports to engage talented youths as part of measures to curb social vices in the state and Nigeria.
Mr Soname gave the advice when he received the Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Dr Oluwadare Kehinde and members of the Technical Committee on Resuscitation and Repositioning of Sports in Ikenne.
The proprietor of Remo Stars Football Club said sports has potential to make the state great, if the abundant talents discovered at the grassroots were properly harnessed and nurtured to stardom to represent the state and country at major sporting events.
Mr Soname who promised to look into areas that he could invest in sports, encouraged the state government to look into other sporting activities apart from football, which he said was cheaper and more rewarding.
Earlier, Ogun State Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Dr Oluwadare Kehinde had explained that the committee was set up to stimulate the sports sector and also engage youths in sporting activities.
Dr Kehinde solicited the support of Mr Soname to ensure the state’s successful outing at the forthcoming National Sport Festival tagged; “Edo 2020”.
