Nassarawa To Be Sports Theatre In 2 Years, Says Sports Adviser.
Mr. Yakubu Kwanta, Principal Special Advisor to the Governor of the State of Nassarawa on Youth, Sports and NGO Affairs, said that in the next two years, the state would be a sports theater to be seen in Nigeria. Kwanta told reporters outside the 5th National Games for Youth (JNG) that the charge was based on the commitment and determination of the governor, Mr. Abdullahi Sule, to reorganize the sport.
He added that the state was already in talks with German consultants for the creation of an open sports theater. “Governor Sule is very committed to the development of sport and recently we celebrated the 100 days of his term during which many achievements were made in terms of sports development. We have defined a sports school and the contract has already been awarded.”
“We have many consultants around the world and we have started conversations with the best consultants in Germany to organize a sports theater here.” Then, in the next two years, Nasarawa will become a sports theater in Nigeria,” he said.
Kwanta said that they (the officials) were working to obtain new cutting-edge facilities that would be the envy of everyone. “We are working to have new facilities that would not compare with any. “In the north-central area, our stadium is one of the best and this administration is determined to do even better,” he said.
Kwanta added that Governor Sule attaches great importance to youth development and uses sport as one of the tools to achieve this goal. “Governor Sule is very committed to the development of youth in the state of Nasarawa. We recently opened a committee to reorganize the sport in all areas of local government,” he added.
Commenting on Nassarawa’s performance in the NYG, Kwanta was impressed by the performance of the athletes.
