"In contemporary times, Sports in its entirety has assumed a global political, economic and social status placing high on the agenda of governments. Leaders and countries have leveraged on excellence in sports to advance their power and navigate their diplomatic relations, but above all to generate employment, create jobs and increase government revenue. Nigeria, a country where sporting talents abound especially amongst its youth and where participation in sports has experienced remarkable growth in the past decades, cannot therefore be left out of this positive scenario. The time for Nigeria to plug into the global business sports world is long over due. But first, government must lead the way by providing a policy that will drive the process, hence, this draft document."

- Hon. Sunday Dare, Honourable Minister of Youth & Sports Development,
Federal Republic of Nigeria
