Return to grassroots sports, Rasheed Mafe

Chairman of Mosan Okunola Local Council Development Authority, Alhaji Rasheed Mafe has challenged sports administrators in the country to return to grassroots sports development if Nigeria must reposition herself among the comity of sporting nations.

Speaking at the draw for the 2010 Abesan Cup at Saint Bernadette Schools, Ipaja, the council chairman stressed that in pursuit of that goal, his administration would soon embark on a junior football league, with a view to identifying young talents for state and country.

He praised the efforts of the organisers of the Abesan Cup for sustaining the grassroots competition that has produced the likes of Pius Ikedia among others.
