The Senior Pastor of Christ Livingspring Apostolic Ministry, CLAM, Wole Oladiyun, has said that governments at all levels must support inter-house sports to groom younger generations in sports and other areas in order to bring out the seed of greatness in them to develop Nigeria.
Pastor Oladiyun said this during the 5th inter-house sports competition of JNissi nursery and primary school in Agege Stadium. Oladiyun, who is the school Board Chairman said when children with natural abilities come up to exhibit what they have inside in the arena of sports, we must take good cognizance of that because many people all over the world exhibit their sports talents.
“In order to fish them out, we need to create a platform for them. So the platform is being created by Jnissi nursery and primary school (through inter-house sports). By doing this, we bring out the seed of greatness inside of them because we may not be able to tell because what we are doing today (sports) may put food in their table tomorrow,”he said.
JNissi Director of Studies, Mrs. Bukola Oladiyun said the school knows too well that sport is a universal language for unity and development; hence, JNissi Nursery and Primary school uses it practically to foster the habits of synergy, and growth in their pupils.
“As a vibrant twenty first century educational institution keen to develop the total child, we do not compromise the space for psycho motor development in our curriculum. Over the years, we have seen the benefits of exposing learners to wholesome education where they are able to explore all the opportunities available to them through the three domains of education namely: cognitive, affective and psycho motor,” she said.
Nollywood actor, Yomi Fash-Lanso said JNissi is creating a bright future for sports in Nigeria and all the sectors through the annual inter-house sports, while urging the government to put the right people to manage various positions, including education to enable them develop.
