Sport Should Be An Important Tool For Image Projection And Diplomacy – Abdulrazaq
Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq says sports could be used by Nigeria to project its strength to the world if local talents are properly developed and motivated.
The governor said this at the closing ceremony of the 5th National Youth Games in Ilorin. “It’s my hope that government at all levels would develop a sectoral strategy to transform sports into an industry that empowers our teeming youths for social and economic development.
Sport“Sports should not just be for mere recreation; it should be an important tool for image projection and diplomacy, a source of soft power and a big industry that can engage the youths who would otherwise have channeled their abundant energy to other untoward activities.” Abdulrazaq said
