President of the Nigeria Volleyball Federation (NVBF), Engineer Musa Nimrod, has said that if an investment is put into sports, banditry and kidnappings will cease to exist in North-west, Nigeria.
He said this on January 25 during a visit from the north-west zonal coordinator, Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, Alhaji Abdullahi Idris and his management team in his office in Kaduna.
“I am calling on the Governors from the north west states to invest in sports and it will end insecurity in the region,” he said.
While speaking, he recognized the commitment of the north-west zonal office of the Ministry of Youth and Sports Development towards grassroots-sports development. He, however, urged the government of all states in the Northwest consider sports as a good means of putting a stop to banditry and kidnapping.
Also the zonal coordinator told the NVBF boss that sports stakeholders in the zone have agreed to award him for his immense contribution and support towards sports development.
