*Speaks on the construction of sports facility in Offa
The Aare Bobajiro of Offa land, Aare Musbaudeen Olaniyi stated that Offa Local Government Area in Kwara State is the new home of volleyball.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Print Best Nigeria Limited made the claim following Offa Volleyball Club’s success at the just concluded 2023 Nigeria Volleyball Premier League in Abuja on Sunday.
The Lagos based business mogul revealed that volleyball players from Offa have gained employment into the military and paramilitary organisation through their performances.
Aare Musbau said, “I was so happy when I heard the news of Offa Volleyball Club winning against the NSCDC of Abuja. It is a good one for the team winning the volleyball league back to back.
“It is no longer a secret that Offa is the home of volleyball in Nigeria and the community has produced lots of stars. I want to commend the Coach of Offa VC, Suleiman Ajeigbe for doing a wonderful job.
“We have some of our players playing in the different categories in the national team. Some of the players like Abdulquadri Jayeiola and Oyewale Oyedepo are playing their trade outside Africa.
“Through the game, some of the players have gained employment into the Nigeria Customs Service and the Nigeria Navy,” the philanthropist said.
He used the occasion to shed light on a sports facility he is currently building in Offa, saying that it is essentially being built to promote grassroots sports in his hometown.
“Currently, we are building a Sports Village in Offa. It’s not just for football. It is also for other sports like volleyball where I have a passion.
“There is lawn tennis, table tennis and 7-a-side football pitch. We also have recreational facilities attached to it,” he said.
