Sporting activities and exercise have been our daily routine and part of our lives, knowingly or unknowingly, particularly the youths and younger generation.
There is an old adage and saying that “all works and no play makes jack a dull boy”.
The above adage is trying to emphasize on the need and importance of sports and it’s inculcation into the school and education curriculum.
Sports are part of exercise and a way of relaxing our nerves, physical fitness and fun too.
The importance of sports can never be jettisoned or ignored because it’s very lucrative in the western world and as well serving as a major source of revenue to western countries.
The previous government and administration has done absolutely nothing or little in the sports sector of which it might be as a result of lack of interest in sports by previous government or lackadaisical attitude on their part.
Currently in Anambra state, we cannot boost of a standard stadium of international repute.
There are absence of sophisticated and modernized sporting apparatus and equipment, no presence of golf center, gymnastics auditorium and so on.
Previous government failed to buy the idea of sports and ignored the sector outrightly, not knowing that sports can serve as a means of revenue generation into the state when managed properly and it can as well serve as a means of youth engagement and job creation for sports enthusiast, professionals and young people that have flare or interest for one sporting activity or the other.
