Sports administrator canvasses investment in other sports





Chief Dili Onyedinma, Acting Director of Sports, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), on Friday called on sports-loving Nigerians to invest in the promotion of baseball, cricket and squash for job and wealth creation.

Onyedinma made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja while speaking on ways of reducing over concentration on football by youths.

She said that baseball, cricket and squash had the potential of not only transforming Nigerian youths into super stars but also guaranteeing financial security.

The FCT sports boss appealed for sponsorship of other sports to mak them compete favourably with football in the country.

“If you go to the stadium, you will see many youths hanging for football training and participation in matches.

“These youths should be encouraged to develop interest and talent in other sports to make fame out of them,’’ Onyedinma said.

She expressed the willingness of the FCT sports authority to continue to create enabling environment for the development of sports among youths in the territory.

She said, ‘’We are ready to extend hands of fellowship to any person or persons or corporate bodies that have interest in developing sports through sponsorship or otherwise.’’

Many Nigerian youths have always preferred football to other sports, thus making football very popular to the neglect of other sports.
