Rio Hospitality Project is new dawn – NOA DG

The Director General of the National Orientation Agency (NOA), Mr Mike Omeri, has described the Rio Olympic Games Nigeria House Project as a new dawn in sports business. Omeri made the statement during a courtesy call by the Nigeria House Committee Project on Rio 2016 Olympics in his office at the Area 1 National Secretariat.
Mike-OmeriHe said he is happy because the committee deemed it fit to visit the NOA  underscoring the importance and how strategic the agency is in mobilizing Nigerians regarding the task ahead.
“I am happy with your visit which underscores the importance of who we are and what the NOA can do. I believe if there are two members in your sub-committee one should come from the NOA because of how strategic we are to actualise this project.
The NOA remains at the vanguard of promoting whatever is good about Nigeria, its people, our culture, landscape and everything. This government had talked about employment and poverty alleviation, therefore everything we do should be targeted at escaping from poverty and our youths taken away from social vices for the good of the society. I see what you are doing as further implementing the policy of this government. If there was no policy you won’t be here.”
Accepting to partner with the Nigeria House Project Committee, Omeri directed that a senior officer in the agency be attached to a sub-committee in the project to ensure synergy between both bodies.
Earlier, while briefing the DG NOA, Project Coordinator and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), of the Nigeria House Project, Mohammed Abdullahi said that the committee was there specifically to seek his agency’s support in the promotion and awareness of the hospitality business of sports through the Olympics.
“We see the NOA as a key sector to partner with. We have a mandate to promote the image of this country through sporting activities. Olympics is a forum where you have over 205 countries coming to one venue and I think it is one of the best avenues to reach the world and project the image of the country.
