According to the camp initiator, Oteje Olugbenga Abel, the exercise, a Judo grassroots programme, is geared at re-introducing the basics of the sport to primary schools pupils.

Abel explained that the camp would be handled by Coach Dickson Egbewon, a former national coach, who took Team Nigeria to the Athens Olympic Games and Coach Ewa Ekuta, a member of the coaching crew to the All African Games in Algiers.
