The former Team Manager of Crown FC Ogbomoso said he was motivated by the concept of organising volleyball competition for young children in secondary schools.
The former Team Manager of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Ilorin said, “I am donating medals for the Kwara State Inter Secondary School Competition; this is my own contribution to the organisers.
“After school hours, we see how some students litter the streets because they do not have anything doing. This competition will keep them busy and also reshape their thing.
“Children that grew up without the knowledge of sports think football is the only sport because it is the most popular game in the country. This Inter Secondary School Competition will give them an opportunity of chosing other sports asides football”.
The former President Kwara State All Stars Football Family confirmed that he will be attending the final of the tournament.
