Mr. Bob, while delivering his speech during the final of the just concluded FCT School Loofball Competition, said that sport benefits participants in many ways, both healthwise and psychologically.

According to him, "Sport plays a major role in shaping the lives of participants and spectators alike. Everyone who participates in sport and sports related activities do so for a grand reason of satisfying the quest for glory; others include entertainment, health, inclusiveness, self-esteem etc. It has also shown over the years to be a means of solidifying and sustaining peace in countries and communities all around the world.

"Loofball, the fastest rising sport in Nigeria brings to the stage a platform for the development of skills, talents, and potentials of our teeming youths."
