Minister promises sports rejuvenation

The new Minister of Youth and Sports, Mr. Sunday Dare, has said that he is determined to rejuvenate sports in Nigeria.

He made this known while felicitating with Nigerians on the country’s 59th Independence anniversary on Tuesday being October 1st. 

He called on the Nigerian youth to join hands in building the country, reiterating that he was committed to making them globally competitive. 

“The ministry had in pursuant to this, over the past few weeks of assuming office, laid the building blocks of programmes that will not only rejuvenate sports but also develop the youths through a combination of empowerment and employment. 

“An economically empowered youth is an emancipated youth and the multiplier effect on the nation is better felt, than imagined. We are poised to delivering this, in line with the presidential mandate.” Said Mr. Dare. 

He also advised Nigerians to focus on things that bring about unity rather than those that cause division or hatred. 

“Bitterness, ethno-religious division and strife have no place in the prosperous Nigeria of our dreams”. 

“If we all do what is right within our sphere of influence, the New Nigeria we desire will rise. The occasion of our nation’s 59th Independence anniversary is a good time to remind ourselves that change begins with us.” he added
