“We will want to get young people to play sports, not just to compete but to stay fit and healthy,” he added.

Speaking on the occasion, the head of strategies, West Africa, Felix Awogu, emphasized the readiness of SuperSport to work with the Minister to bring about the much-needed change in the sports sector.

“As sponsors of the National Team, the Super Eagles and the Nigeria Football Premier League, SuperSport will want to understudy whatever vision the minister has for sports and see how we can support that vision,” he said.

Responding, Dalung said his major assignment was to sanitize the sports industry in order to make it more attractive to investors.

According to Dalung, “Any company putting funds for sports development in Nigeria must get valued satisfaction for their investment in Sports. Other countries do not depend on government for funding, so we will understudy the success stories of other countries to find out how they succeeded in generating and managing their funds and resources.”
