    Being a former national volleyball player who understands the dynamics of sports development, he laid more emphasis on grass roots development which is eminent to sports development.

    Buttressing his point, he commended the Nigeria Rugby Football Federation for their effort towards the growth of the sport in Nigeria and called on the NRFF President to make available all necessary details to enhance government's participation in the Get into Rugby programme currently running at a slow pace in Nigeria also pledging his commitment to support the programme.
