PROFESSIONALISM WILL MAKE NIGERIA LEAGUES BETTER – DARE

The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr. Sunday Dare has reassured  that professionalism of Nigerian  Football Development  being promoted by the ongoing reforms of the nation’s football will make Nigerian Leagues better and put it at   par with others around the world.

The Minister said his  desire is to see the Nigerian Leagues grow beyond  the current state with rapid transformation  through proper licensing, and financial control is unwavering.

Mr. Sunday Dare said the step is  critical for building stakeholder confidence following the reclassification of sports from recreation to business as part of President Buhari’s commitment to make sports  business.

He said  other necessary steps involve running the leagues as businesses and not as recreation . According to  Dare “we have a clear plan and vision. We are dogged in working to fulfil them leveraging on public and private financing to achieve  our goal. We are committed  to make changes that would position  our league for the best.”
The Minister  had daid the league would not resume until basic conditions on club licensing control are enforced.

“As a ministry, infrastructure renewal is our ultimate goal to ensure television friendly output that will encourage investors to put their money in a product that is quite attractive, this boils down to professionalism of all stakeholders, administrators, coaches, players, and fans of round leather game.

“This is the only way we can attract sponsors and fans returning in large crowds to the stadium.  when all facilities are put in better shape ahead of the new season. We are looking licensing,  infrastructure, incentives, and better organize leagues when the season commences,” the Minister explained.

The  Minister   expressed  confidence that Nigeria will get it right and return  to apex position in African football.
